One Day in Marion on the C&O

Chesapeake & Ohio GP9 No. 6156 is about to cross the Erie Lackawanna, and Penn Central mainlines with a northbound freight in Marion in the late 1960s/early 1970s. Note that Marion Union Station still had platform sheds on the C&O side when this image was made. The C&O operated weekend-only passenger trains through here until the coming of Amtrak on May 1, 1971. Nos. 46 and 47 operated between Detroit and Ashland, Kentucky, and connected with the Cincinnati-Washington George Washington.
