A Cleveland, Akron Pair

Here are two images that are both more than half a century old. Both are redos of earlier images using new scans.

In the top image, which I made, is a leased Great Northern locomotive on the point of an EMD F7A, F7B, F7A set in Collinwood Yard in Cleveland in the first year of Penn Central.

The bottom image was made by my Dad, Joe Farkas. He took only a few railfan photos, but this one is my favorite.

An EL Alco FA, FB, FB, FA set is westbound at the Wilbeth Road foot bridge in Akron in the mid-1960’s.

The tracks are (from left to right) an Erie Lackawanna track to service industries, westbound EL main, eastbound EL main, unknown, westbound B&O main, eastbound B&O main, Pennsylvania Railroad line from Hudson to Warwick.

In the back right is a Chicago & North Western boxcar at a lumberyard served by the Akron & Barberton Belt.
