One Day in Akron Near the Union Depot

It is early in the Penn Central era (1968 or 1969) in Akron. A northbound PC freight headed by three former New York Central locomotives is heading east on the joint tracks shared by the Baltimore & Ohio and PC. More than likely, this train will cross over at Arlington Street to the ex-PRR line that runs from Akron to Hudson and go north to Motor Yard and beyond.

The train is passing the west end of Akron Union Depot.
