What Was the First Thing You Noticed?

When you initially glanced over this image what was the first thing that you noticed?

Was it the Baltimore & Ohio F7A No. 4529 or was it the boxcar behind it?

Whatever it was both feature something you won’t see anymore at Voris Street in Akron.

You won’t see F units in motive power consists anymore and you also won’t see the words “cushion underframe” on boxcars.

Yet were common sights that many might have taken for granted when this image was made in the early 1970s.
