It's December 1978, two and a half years since Conrail was born, and a repainted Penn Central (CR 6356) SD-40 leads a pair of repainted SD-45 across the B&O mainline in Mansfield, OH.

The conductor dares not venture outside the warm comfort of his caboose's bay window in order to pick up train orders from the BO Junction's operator on the ground. Ice hanging off a moving train is a sure sign the weather is frigid! Dig the operator's groovy coat. Can you tell it's December 1978 on the famous PRR/CR Chicago to New York mainline in Mansfield, Ohio? BO Junction was one of three towers in the town, all within a mile of each other. Of course all are gone today. The B&O line south was abandoned at least 10 years ago, while the line north was taken over by the Ashland Railroad. The building in the background is Union Station, where the train is crossing what was left of the EL's Hoboken to Chicago mainline.

Is it Conrail or Penn Central? Without knowing the date of this photo, you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between this December 1976 photo and one taken a year earlier, when the line through Berea, OH was still under PC control.

Another photo taken in December 1976 outside Cleveland, OH that looks as if Conrail were still off in the future. A lone GP-7 PC 5631 sits with a transfer caboose in the siding.

It's a cold day in December 1976 as the Collinwood Engine Terminal comes alive on a snowy morning. While it looks like a sea of ancient Alco and EMD black engines, there is one lone blue unit.

The government is hammering out the final details on Conrail as EL 1051 is doing some local work in Sterling, OH in December 1975. It's heading east on the Erie Lackawanna's Chicago-Hoboken mainline and is about to cross the B&O's Washington-Chicago mainline at the tower. The EL and the B&O paralleled each other for a few miles on either side of the tower. The only thing left today in this shot is the CSX line.

It's still December 1975 but we're down on the Penn Central outside Berea, OH, where a fast-moving freight lead by three EMD units passes under the signal bridge.
