By the mid 1930's this vast empire was gone, decimated by the automobile and paved roads. Relive that era at the Northern Ohio Railway Museum. See streetcars, interurbans, rapid transit and railroad equipment from Ohio, dating from 1895 to 1970 on a walking tour. Includes a visit to the restoration shop.
