Steam Saturday: Steamin’ in Independence

We’ve set the wayback machine to the era when former Grand Trunk Western 2-8-2 No. 4070 was the primary motive power pulling Cuyahoga Valley Line excursion trains through the then-named Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area.

In the photo above,l the 4070 and a Baltimore & Ohio torpedo tube Geep are southbound in Independence on Oct. 18, 1980. It was common in that era for a Chessie System diesel to accompany the CVL trains.
