New York Trip 2013 Part 2
Today we rode the Cuyahoga Scenic Railroad--in their dome car!! The ride is a 101-mile ride from Rockville (Independence) Ohio to Akron and back. The train was 12 cars long with an engine at each end. This is former Baltimore & Ohio (B&O) Railroad trackage. The first train ran on this line in 1880 and the line was built to access the coal fields south of here for use in the steel industry. This tourist railroad now has 2,300 volunteers keeping it running!!!!
