Merger, What Merger?

It’s the late 1960s in Akron. The Pennsylvania Railroad has merged with the New York Central to form Penn Central.

But you might not know it from this scene which could have been made in the early 1960s.

PRR SW9 switcher 9114 is working a cut of cars by the Erie Lackawanna passenger and freight stations, one of which carries an NYC oval herald.

The 9114 was built in December 1952 and would survive long enough to be on the Conrail motive power roster for a while.
