B&O GP35 3547
Title:  B&O GP35 3547
Description:  Baltimore & Ohio Railroad GP35 3547 passing below Akron Junction in Akron, Ohio on March 4, 1983, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. The engineer's cab heater intake is covered over, a common adjustment on EMD locomotives in winter. This locomotive was built in July 1964 (c/n 29379) on EMD Order 7736. I believe this was called Akron Junction. Fred Stuckman adds the following (valid as of 1/1/11, no kiddding) :

The tracks below are the old Cleveland line, it originates in Cleveland and winds it's way through eastern Ohio and ends at the Ohio River across from Wheeling WV. That line was originally called the CT&V (Cleveland Terminal & Valley). The line today is abandoned from Urichsville Ohio to the river. CSX still owns a small portion in Cleveland, CVSR from Cleveland to Akron, Metro, our bus company, from Akron to Canton. Wheeling & Lake Erie operates the Akron-Canton line for the industries and CVSR runs passenger excursions on it June through August. South of Canton, it's abandoned to Dover. From there to Urichsville is operated by RJ Corman. Finally, the Pennsy, CA&C (Cleveland Akron & Columbus) came onto the main just 100' or so to the left of that image at AY interlocking, and ran concurrent with the B&O until Warwick Ohio. (Clinton) From there, it would continue to Columbus. Each company owned one main track between AY and Warwick. From Hudson south, most of it is torn up. The track through Hudson is the Cleveland & Pittsburgh line. That has been PRR/PC/CR/NS, still quite active today.
