New York Central in Marion

At one time Marion was a crossroads of four railroads, including the Pennsylvania, New York Central, Chesapeake & Ohio and Erie.

Today we take a trip to Marion in the wayback machine to December 1967. By now the Pennsy line has been purchased by Norfolk & Western and the Erie is the Erie Lackawanna.

In less than three months the NYC will become Penn Central. But that is still down the road.

NYC F7A No. 1766 and GP9 No. 7460 team up to pull a train through Marion, on the former Big Four line between Cleveland and St. Louis.
