Bob Zimmerman presents “Cleveland 1975-1983.” In the mid-1970’s, many of Penn Central’s Alcos and F-units migrated from western New York to Cleveland, Ohio. On October 31, 1975, Amtrak inaugurated the Lake Shore Limited, providing service west of Buffalo. Cleveland has had an extensive rapid transit system, making it possible to travel from the lakefront Amtrak station to Collinwood Yard and other points of interest without a car. Take a look at early Conrail operations, plus Norfolk & Western, the industrial flats, Shaker Heights PCC’s, and the Airporter line, with a few surprises along the way.
