50 years ago today August 30, 1968 the final run of the local freight train on the Springport branch of the former Penn Central (former NYCS, former LS&MS trackage) between Albion and Springport when that train pulled a box car from the Springport Elevator, just north of M-99 in downtown Springport.

Maybe this is the boxcar? Haha
Taken in 1968 so photographer may have been capturing the last traffic.
