A Conrail westbound is on the former Erie main in Rittman, Ohio. At this point the train is drifting downgrade and will pass through "downtown" Rittman and then cross the Chessie at Sterling after that. Eastbounds from Sterling to Akron faced a heavy grade here, Silver Creek Hill, that would put all but the lightest trains down to a crawl. CR 6307 came to Conrail as PC 6054. Note the typical high wide often seen on this line. One track remains here today, dead ended at Rittman, operated by the Akron Barberton Cluster Railroad.
