EL Monday: Where I Once Rode the Lake Cities

I am looking east at the corner of Erie Street and Sterling Avenue in Rittman in March 1987. By this time the two track mainline of the Erie Lackawanna had been torn up in many places. How strange to think that just over 20 years before this, I had ridden a round trip on the Erie Lackawanna’s The Lake Cities from Akron to Marion through this very spot. Today the track has been removed to a point east of South Main Street in Rittman.
