Clear of the yard
Title:  Clear of the yard
Description:  RPPY has reached Shaws, the block limit station near Shaw Rd, about a mile or so south of Terrace Dr. Now clear of the East Binghamton yard, it still had a long slow ride before it could start to run, as there was a 10 MPH speed restriction almost all the way to the state line. It made for an easy chase, but not so good for the crews.

Moving now
Title:  Moving now
Description:  RPPY has cleared the slow trackage in NY, and is now getting a roll on as it runs next to the road coming into Hallstead. The long hood forward practice on NS extended to the modern GEs, which must have been a real pain for the crews.
