The Scene, Not Just the Locomotive

Sometimes it’s the scene and not just the locomotive. It is the summer of 1967 in Dennison, Ohio.

My friend Mike Ondecker and I have left our usual railfanning locations to go to see the Pennsylvania Railroad in Dennison.

In a few months, Penn Central will change everything, but for today, this is still Pennsy history.

PRR U25B No. 2608 is working the yard and has come east of the road at the east end of the yard. Soon, the GE U boat will back into the yard and resume work, but for now let’s soak in the summer sun and the scene.

There is so much to see. As an example, check out the Insulbrick on the East End Restaurant. Insulbrick was similar to the shingles that you might find on a house.

It is made with a brick design and used on the sides of a building.
