Through the blades
Title:  Through the blades
Description:  SLN 5 rolls through the twin semaphores at MP 243-actually, they are 242-1 and 242-2, they were just east of MP 243-knocking down the signal on track 1. This was probably the most popular shot on the Tier west of Binghamton. Easy to get to, and couldnt beat a pair of blades side by side.
