Engine terminal
Title:  Engine terminal
Description:  There was a small trailer park on Conklin Road, almost adjacent to the CP engine house. Sometimes you could get a shot here if nothing was parked on the runners, such as on this day. A wide variety of equipment could be seen. Todays view has a PLM unit, a few CP units, a D&H lightning stripe GP 38-2, and a leftover from steam days, an old tender. whose purpose I do not now recall. The ex DLW yard tower can be seen at far left.

Deep in the gorge
Title:  Deep in the gorge
Description:  In some places, the valley is 1000 feet from the river to ridge top. This is one such place, just west of West Cameron, where there is not room for tracks and road on the river bank. The road was built on the other side of the river at this point. From that location we see 270 roll east beyond a field of hay bales.

On the fast track
Title:  On the fast track
Description:  The Southern Tier Line west of Hornell was double track to CP River, roughly where the old NT tower was on EL, where the River Line to Olean split from the Buffalo Sub. Under Conrail, it had a dual personality. Track 1 was fairly well maintained, and good for track speed of 40 MPH. Track 2, on the other hand, was not. It had about 10 miles of 25 MPH running, the rest 10 MPH. It was jokingly referred to as the "D&H Main," since dispatchers faced with a choice of running a D&H train on track 1, or a Conrail train, would send the D&H train down track 2, making for a long trip to Hornell. Train 270 had good luck this day, and got the fast track. Seen here passing the semaphore pole-about 7 cars from the head end, on the left-at Hunt with 11 intermodal and 36 freight.
