One Day in Painesville

The wayback machine as you requested has landed us in Painesville, Ohio. It’s a little fuzzy as to whether it is late 1967 or early 1968.

Whatever the case, the era of the New York Central Railroad is in its final months so let’s enjoy an all NYC scene while we can.

There are four geeps on the property near the passenger station along with three cabooses and a handful of freight cars.

The top image is full frame while the bottom image is cropped to focus in on that line of motive power and cabooses.

Today most of these tracks are gone and you wouldn’t find CSX leaving four high-nose locomotives sitting around let along four locomotives of any kind.

Amtrak’s Lake Shore Limited passes here six days a week but has never stopped to pick up passengers. The boarding platforms visible in these images are long gone.
