Switching an Office Car in Akron

You won’t see a scene like this anymore in Akron. It is Dec. 17, 1967, and a Baltimore & Ohio switcher is moving Chesapeake & Ohio office car No. 2. The photographer didn’t remember if the car was being removed from or being added to the consist of the Diplomat. But shuffling passenger cars and head end cars at Akron Union Depot was once a common practice.
