EL Monday: The Lake Cities in Akron

Erie Lackawanna E8A No. 825 is leading the Lake Cities west in Akron in 1967-1969. By 1969, the Lake Cities was the last EL passenger train still operating in Akron. Note the numerous head end cars that the train is carrying. No. 825 was built for the Erie Railroad in February 1951, so it has made the journey over these tracks many times.
