Penn Central F Unit in Marion

Penn Central F7A No. 1743 leads an eastbound through Marion in fall 1968. Notice the Northern Pacific boxcar on a train passing on an adjacent track.

The trains are crossing the former Pennsylvania Railroad line between Sandusky and Columbus that at the time this image was made had come under Norfolk & Western ownership.

The tracks in use were a paired arrangement between PC and Erie Lackawanna as far east as Galion.
