EL Monday: Rusty Rails in Akron

A Chessie System train is on the Baltimore & Ohio mainline running westbound in Akron in June 1981. The two very rusty tracks to the left of the train are what remains of the Erie Lackawanna mainline through Akron. To their left, the empty field was where the EL’s McCoy Street Yard was.
