ARRC Gets Shout Out in Summer Classic Trains

The Akron Railroad Club was mentioned in a short piece published in the Summer 2020 issue of Classic Trains magazine.

The short article on Page 6 accompanied two photographs made during a June 26, 1960, ARRC outing on the former Shaker Heights Rapid Transit system.

Participants are shown riding in a pair of side dump cars on what today is the Green Line along Shaker Boulevard in Shaker Heights. Another photograph shows the special near Cleveland Union Terminal.

The photographs were made by Jim Kreuzberger and today are in the collection of the Minnesota Streetcar Museum.

The 1960s outing was one of several that the ARRC made in the 1950s and early 1960s.
