Looks Like the Pennsy

When these photographs were taken the Pennsylvania Railroad name had been gone for more than 30 years.

There are still times when ghosts of the Pennsy can still be seen roaming. These photographs, for example, appear to show PRR passenger trains on a Pennsy route.

But in one instance the train is actually wearing a PRR-inspired paint scheme on Ohio Central’s Columbus & Ohio River subsidiary, which uses former PRR rails.

These images were taken on the same photo special from Oct. 5, 2002. They were made just west of West Lafayette and crossing the Tuscarawas River just west of Newcomerstown

Some images were made in Bedford on Norfolk Southern’s Cleveland Line, a former PRR route between Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The train is being pulled by Bennett Levin’s Juniata Terminals E7A, which is an actual former Pennsy locomotive.

These images were made on May 8, 2011.
