Jaite in 1967

September 17, 2022

I found two one-level 600 capacity metal slide boxes at a thrift store. There were about 800 slides still in them. No, I did not find the mother lode of railroad slides. In fact, there were five railroad slides, but only four were usable. Still, here are the first two.

These two photos taken by an unidentified photographer show the ex-Baltimore & Ohio passenger station and freight house at Jaite on the Valley Line connecting Cleveland and Akron. The images were made in July 1966 and at the time Jaite was being used as a train order station.

These structures still exist in Jaite as historic displays along the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad.

However, they have been moved further back from the tracks and repainted into a different color.
