Akron, Canton & Youngstown H20-44 No. 503, a 2,000 h.p. end-cab road-switcher built by Fairbanks-Morse, crosses the Big Four (NYC) main line at New London, Ohio, with a westbound freight in 1949. The 171-mile AC&Y ran between Akron and Delphos, Ohio, but never reached Canton or Youngstown.

One thought on “Akron, Canton & Youngstown action

  1. I grew up very near the AC&Y main yard in East Akron, spent many a day hanging out there. Of course those were different days when young fans were more “tolerated” than they are now. The diamonds above are no longer there, the former AC&Y line joins the former NYC line there in New London and current owner Wheeling and Lake Erie uses trackage rights on the now-CSX line to Greenwich, OH where the old AC&Y line splits back off. No sign of the old interlocking anymore and the former AC&Y ROW is being converted to a Hike and Bike trail.
