In The Shadows of the 1960s

Westbound Baltimore & Ohio No. 1444 is pulling up to the B&O’s Kent passenger station in this late 1960s image. Soon she and her train the Diplomat would be leaving for Akron.

In the second image, it is, again, the late 1960s in Akron and Erie Lackawanna No. 7094 is under the signal bridge east of the Quaker Oats plant. The shadows on the 7094 make the location all the more real to a 1960s railfan. Sadly, today the 7094, the signal bridge, and the EL are gone.
