Magazine Features Tribute to Interlocking Towers

The July issue of Railfan & Railroad is devoted to interlocking towers, although none of the towers featured were in Ohio.

The issue contains six stories about towers, including an account telling stories from a towerman as he qualified at various towers on the New York Division of the Erie Lackawanna in the 1960s and 1970s.

Other stories feature towers along the former Baltimore & Ohio in West Virginia, active towers still manned by Chicago commuter train operator Metra, and Niles Tower in California at a crossing of the Southern Pacific and Western Pacific in the 1980s with photography by noted railroad photographer Ted Benson.
