Along the AC&Y in Akron

We’re checking out Brittain Yard on the Akron, Canton & Youngstown in Akron on Dec. 17, 1967. By now the AC&Y is part of the Norfolk & Western although some AC&Y motive power continues to in revenue service without having been repainted.

Shown is a Fairbanks-Morse H16-44. Built in December 1951, No. 202 was traded in to EMD in 1969. It was one of 18 H16-44 road switchers on the AC&Y roster. They were sometimes called “big horses.”
