A caboose hop heads west through Akron,Ohio on the former Erie Lackawanna main, destination Creston,Ohio and the N&W interchange there. The EL and N&W had interchanged ore trains there prior to Conrail, and this practice continued a couple of years after the merger. A pair of ex EL SD45-2's bracket a CN M636, and a former DL&W caboose brings up the markers. The 6654 survives today as Norfolk Southern 1700 and can usually be found in the New Jersey shared assets lines.
