B&O’s Diplomat in Akron

The westbound Diplomat of the Baltimore & Ohio is making its station stop in Akron in 1968.

Leading No. 7 today is E8A No. 1446. In the background is the passenger station for the Erie Lackawanna.

The Diplomat is on the westbound B&O main line with the Akron Union Depot passenger platform between No. 1446 and the viewer.

The track between No. 7 and the platform was used for storing cars to be put on passenger trains or cars that were taken off passenger trains.
