NYC models showcased at Ohio gathering

“Last Stop Willoughby: Remembering the CP&E Interurban Railroad” took place in Willoughby, Ohio on August 9 and 10, 2008. Visitors came to the Willoughby Historic District to recall the days of steam engines and electric trolleys. Meany learned about the Cleveland, Painesville & Eastern Railroad (CP&E), Willoughby’s own beloved electric trolley line that ran from 1895 to 1926. The CP&E car barn and power station remain; both seeing new life as a microbrewery and Italian restaurant. Models were on display as part of the event, including many examples of New York Central trains, as seen below. In the first photo, why yes, that is our very own Dick Croy, who was a super help with the recent Cleveland convention.
