Yard and road power
Title:  Yard and road power
Description:  D&H 5017 works a cut of cars as todays prize, the power for RPPY, sits next to the tower. I got lucky today-RPPY went south shortly after this was taken, and I was able to chase to Scranton. Another piece of vanished railroading is in this photo: the D&H box car next to 5017.

Southern and snow
Title:  Southern and snow
Description:  I know there are many parts of Southerns empire where snow is not all that unusual, but I have to love the idea of power from such a typically warm area running up in the snow and cold of NY and PA. This RPPY has just left East Binghamton, and is slowly making its way through Conklin.

Winter wonderland
Title:  Winter wonderland
Description:  It wasnt so wonderful to us, just a long period of cold and snow that had to be endured, except that it gave us some good photo ops. One of these was off the NY 7 overpass at the south end of Conklin, where RPPY is rolling for a place where the winters arent so bad.

Getting out
Title:  Getting out
Description:  RPPY has just left East Binghamton, and is passing BLS Shaws. By this time, trains have usually cleared the south limit of the yard. There is still a slow slog to the end of the double track south of Conklin, as there is a 10 MPH speed restriction in place. Its a drag for the crews, but a great opportunity for photographers.
