Steam Saturday: Chessie 614 in Pennsylvania

July 10, 2021

John Woodworth and I were in Ellwood City, Pennsylvania on June 27, 1981 when I photographed Chessie System 614 on a trestle. This excursion was part of the second season of the Chessie Safety Express program.

This train had originated in Akron and traveled to Pittsburgh before returning to Akron. The next day the 614 and its train made a one-way ferry move from Akron to Pittsburgh.
