Big Four (New York Central) [Penn Central]
Marion, Ohio (AC Tower)
May 23, 1975

This view of the paired trackage at Marion, Ohio includes the oft-photographed signal bridge and AC Tower, seen at left. The single track Big Four line is at right, with the double-track Erie (Erie Lackawanna by the time of the photo) at left and the famed station at right. The tracks in the immediate foreground belong to the Chesapeake & Ohio (the former Hocking Valley line), with the Norfolk & Western's former Pennsylvania Railroad Sandusky Line crossing just past the tower.
