Most of us have been to 21st century Alliance, Ohio, and can visualize the track arrangement with no problem. What about the late 1960s in early Penn Central times? Was it different? Judge for yourselves as these two images look north from the west end of the station platform. Almost everything from an operator handing up train orders to passing PC F-units to a bridge showing decaying early 20th century architecture is gone. A few of the tracks still remain but look at what we have lost.
