Pennsy in Akron Two for Tuesday

I am on the Akron Union Depot station platform in the late 1960s as a Pennsylvania Railroad switcher appears to be backing up with a cut of cars.

In the bottom view, we are looking nearly geographically north. The silos belong to the Quaker Oats plant.

The tracks on the hill by the plant and unseen Railway Express Building were worked by the Erie Lackawanna.

The top image is looking approximately geographically south. The train is passing under the station’s walk way from the station to the Greyhound Bus Depot.
