Abandoned Ohio Train Yard with Control Towers | CSX P&LE Railroad

by | 4:30 pm | Location, Ohio, Trains, United States

We explored this PL&E and CSX train yard with huge control towers abandoned in Ohio. They even abandoned the train cars! We met some awesome new friends.

Located in Northeast Ohio, this abandoned train yard sits forgotten and covered in graffiti. This train rail yard features lots of buildings and served as a train switcher and control tower. The Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad Gateway Train Yard aka P&LE opened in 1957. P&LE railroad operated the gateway yard and the rail line with trains traveling between Youngstown and Pittsburgh. P&LE was absorbed by CSX in 1993. Much of the railroad track is unused and much of it has been removed. There are still several abandoned train cars but sadly no abandoned locomotive but we will keep looking on our urban exploring adventures!
