Forgotten Railroad of Akron

I just ran across these photographs a few days ago, and thought you might like to see photos of a long-gone Akron railroad.

Now I wish I had taken more slides of the PPG industrial railroad that ran in Norton, but here are two taken west of Cleveland-Massillon Road looking east.

I believe the road being crossed is now called Limestone Drive. Until today I thought the “End E-L Operation” sign in the bottom photo was the end of the electrified part of the railroad, but now I believe it is the far end of the Erie Lackawanna trackage through the (cement?) plant.
