EL Monday: Much of This is Gone Now

On Jan. 21, 1973, Erie Lackawanna E8A Nos. 820, 814 are on the point of a trailer train heading east in Akron. Today the scene would show an expressway ramp and two CSX mainlines. Missing would be the Penn Central branch track closest to the viewer and tracks four and beyond which belonged to the EL. The building and the Voris Street grade crossing are gone.
