Before and after
Title:  Before and after
Description:  The two F45s that NYSW acquired from BN are in Binghamton this day. BN 6640 woud become NYSW 3638. NYSW 6370, which had been BN 6644, is in the yellowjacket scheme, one it looks quite good in. A little over a year from now, NYSW would take over operation of the D&H while it was in bankruptcy, and these two units would be joined by a couple of old colleagues via NRL-BN 6635 and BN 6642. It was a good time to be a 45 watcher.

Patch job
Title:  Patch job
Description:  The only giveaways in this set of power sitting at the Binghamton engine house are the patch paint on 6509, and the yellowjacket scheme on 6370. Otherwise it could be Idaho. We see both F45s in this photo. I only saw them once working back to back in freight service. BN 6640, to become NYSW 3638, turned into something of a hangar queen, and was beset by a variety of ills that kept it off the road a lot of the time. The trailing unit, 6370, became 3636, and was a steady presence on NYSW trains into the 21st century.

Odd fellows
Title:  Odd fellows
Description:  NYSW acquired this ex NYO&W switcher and restored it to its original paint job. Here it is at Binghamton in the company of a BN F45, an unlikely a combination of power as youll ever see. Note the D&H hopper at rear in the yard.

Backing in
Title:  Backing in
Description:  At this time, Conrail would not let NYSW change crews out on the main for the D&H to take the train west. This was not without some justification, as the new crew could be anywhere from ten minutes to ten hours from getting on the train. As a result, NYSW had to back its train up into Bevier St, or onto their Utica Branch for the crew change. SLN 5 is doing just that at QD with three ex BN SD 45s. There more than enough room for the 55 Sea Land stacks and 18 freight. Lead unit 6366 doesn't seem to be sure what railroad it wants to run for.

What a difference a few minutes make
Title:  What a difference a few minutes make
Description:  I had just shot TV 301 here 20 minutes earlier in good sun. Now SLN 5 shows up, and its cloud city. Such is the fickle weather of the Southern Tier. Three SD 45s do the job today, a familiar sight to anyone who watched the EL run here. It's a good bet at least one of these units was here under BN ownership.
