EL RS3 #1051         
Waiting on a signal, #1051 is working eastbound on a local (on the Erie Lackawanna Chicago-Hoboken line - about 21 miles west of Akron). It will cross the B&O Washington-Chicago line at the tower. The two railroads paralleled each other for a few miles on either side of the crossing. A B&O branch line north started at Sterling also. Today - the EL line, tower and buildings are gone. CSX still operates both ex-B&O lines.

Tim Huemmer General Cool photo. I've been to this town before and seen the E-L RofW. Good to see what it used to look like 7/25/2008 10:32:57 AM
