Special Time in Cleveland Railroad History

Sometimes a scene captures a special time in history. It is Feb. 24 or 25, 1968, in Cleveland. The Penn Central era had begun less than a month (Feb. 1) prior to this photo.  New York Central No. 1049, an Alco FA-2, sits near the diesel shop at Collinwood Yard. In the far background are a few PC boxcars. Had these not been there, this would look like a NYC photo.
