Steam Saturday: Chessie Safety Express

Chessie System 4-8-4 Greenbrier type No. 614 is heading west out of Pittsburgh on June 27, 1981, with the Chessie Safety Express. The locomotive was built for the Chesapeake & Ohio. The trip had originated in Akron and was trip 17 of the 1981 season. The next day the train made a one way ferry move from Akron to Pittsburgh to get into position for two weekends of trips out of Pittsburgh in mid July.
