Winter Day in Bellevue 50 Years Ago

Here is a photo to go along with the June Akron Railroad Club eBulletin story about Bellevue.

On Dec. 31, 1967, Mike Ondecker and I had a chance to visit the Norfolk & Western Bellevue Yard Tower. It was dark, cold, and snowy, but the tower was warm and well-lit. Out of all the photos taken then – many were acceptable at best – this is a favorite.

A worker paces N&W 3385 (a former Wabash FM H12-44). Could he even imagine that almost 50 years later, his photo would be available around the world?
