Just Another Day on NYC, N&W in late ’60s

Here are two more black and white images from Northeast Ohio. This series will try to capture day-to-day scenes from 1967 to no later than 1972.

In the top image, New York Central No. 1810 heads east on the NYC mainline east of Cleveland sometime in 1968 or 1969. The GE behind 1810 looks like it has Penn Central on its side.

In the other image, Norfolk & Western No. 2047 sits dead around the turntable at the N&W Brewster engine facility. She is more than likely being parted out as I believe she was in the scrap line later on in 1967 or 1968.
