Here's the Erie diamond on the still-standing Akron, OH freight house which I
shot yesterday around noon. The E in the diamond certainly wasn't anything
new when the EL was formed. The logo is a testament to the Erie's "takeover"
of the DL&W and the only contribution the Lackawanna made to the new logo was
the color and two small missing sections of the "E!"
