Coming in for work
Title:  Coming in for work
Description:  Most of the time, MEBU and BUME bypassed the yard at Binghamton using the Buffalo Runner directly up to Bevier St. Every once in a while, theyd have to be switched, or the power changed. Such is the case today, as MEBU rolls into the yard for some attention.

Knocking it down
Title:  Knocking it down
Description:  One of the great things about semaphores is watching them drop as a train passes. I had the pleasure this morning, as BUME rolls past the blade on signal 255-2 at Waverly, seen above the truck to the left of the train.

Out of the tunnel
