Could Be A Couple Decades Earlier

The image above was made on Sept. 27, 1980, but it could have been made a couple of decades earlier.

Baltimore & Ohio GP9k No. 6512  leads a southbound Cuyahoga Valley Line train through Peninsula.

The locomotive and passenger cars have the appearance of having come out of another era.

It was common in the early years of the CVL for Chessie System motive power to substitute for former Grand Trunk Western steam locomotive No. 4070 when the 2-8-2 was down or repairs or elsewhere.

The tracks this train is using is a former B&O branch commonly known as the Valley Line and today used by the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad.
