An odd group of units are westbound on the former Erie Lackawanna in Tallmadge, Ohio (near Akron) in September of '77. The ex Reading Lines and Penn Central units are no surprise, but that ex Florida East Coast GP7, PNC 1507 in this photo, certainly adds to the color riot that was early CR. It's a very typical late 70's Conrail scene from over my way- doors flapping in the breeze on the units, under maintained power smoking it up, and a weed infested ex EL line that is slowly returning to nature. Little remains at this location today.
