An N&W Series From Kent in 1968

All of the images shown above were made on May 30, 1968, in Kent.

The tracks shown were originally the Conotton Valley then became part of the original Wheeling & Lake Erie. Over the years they were merged into the Nickel Plate Road and then the Norfolk & Western.

Today, they make up the Cleveland Subdivision of the modern W&LE.

The series was made in several locations and feature the former passenger station and the bridge over the Baltimore & Ohio.

N&W No. 2496, is a GP9 while No. 2570 is an Alco RS11. Both were built for the NKP.
