img479-Edit-Edit533EChicago, Rock Island & Pacific No. 220 heads west through Akron on the Erie Lackawanna on a cloudy late day in the late 1960s or early 1970s.  It was not uncommon to see run-through foreign power or leased power on the EL, but few of the newer members might realize this. Sorry about the less-than-great image, but the original negative was damaged.
