One Day Early in the CSX Era

December 15, 2019

It an afternoon early in the CSX era, March 14, 1987, to be exact. I’m standing on “the Hill” in Akron where four locomotives led by Chessie System-painted (Baltimore & Ohio) GP40-2 No. 4308 are eastbound climbing east of the CSX yard. The track on the right is the now-removed ex-Conrail line from Hudson, to Akron.
