Early CSX Action in Akron

The wayback machine has at our request taken us back to the early CSX era. A ratty looking CSXT SD40 No. 8389 (former Chesapeake & Ohio) leads a westbound through downtown Akron on Nov. 14, 1987. The structure in the background once connected Akron Union Depot with the Greyhound Bus station and also led to the stairways to track level for passenger trains. Even further back, those silos were once part of a Quaker Oats plant.
