Kent as it Used to Be

Here is the Kent you’ll never see again. It’s the late 1960s, and the Erie Lackawanna is still alive. The passenger station is still in use and there is an Erie boxcar sitting south of the station. The Baltimore & Ohio freight heading west has a wagon top caboose. There is no park where the river flows as there is now and the cars seen in the image are true collector’s treasures today.
