Conrail Two for Tuesday

It’s Tuesday and time to present a pair of images from the same railroad.

In the top image, we see Conrail SD60M leading an eastbound manifest freight on the Fort Wayne Line in Orrville on May 25, 1996.

The bridge it is passing beneath carries the Wheeling & Lake Erie.

The photographer wrote about the image, “while Conrail tolerated my entering their little-used yard in Orrville, Norfolk Southern would not allow this today.”

In the bottom image, Conrail SD45 No. 6130 is shown in Akron in June 1979 during the railroad’s relatively short life in the rubber city.
