What a Heritage Lineup

It’s the early Conrail era in Akron where we see an intermodal train cruise past Voris Street and beneath the Interstate 76 overpass. The motive power is a generational portrait with units in Penn Central and Erie Lackawanna liveries. As a reminder of what this is the third unit wears the then new Conrail livery.

During these years intermodal trains continued to operate on the former EL tracks through Akron.
