Steam Sunday: Chessie 614 in Akron

Chessie System 614 is in Akron on June 23, 1981. The 4-8-4 locomotive pulled two Chessie Safety Express excursions that the photographer recalls as having operated to Pittsburgh.

The Greenbrier-type locomotive was built in Lima, Ohio, in June 1948 for the Chesapeake & Ohio.

It is shown on the connecting track from the Valley Line to the Chicago-Pittsburgh mainline.
