Railroading as it Once Was: Early Conrail Colors on the Former Erie Lackawanna Mainline in Akron

With U25B bookends, this colorful set of power heads east on the former Erie in Akron in July 1978. Most of the old buildings behind the train are gone now and all will be gone soon to make way for a highway project. The tracks the train is on are, of course, long gone.
