CR SD50 #6717
Title:  CR SD50 #6717
Description:  Newly delivered SD50 #6717 sits in the Conrail Conway yard waiting for an assignment. Built by EMD in November of 1983, this SD50 model answered the immediate need for power that Conrail had when rail shipping picked up after a slump. After the Conrail breakup, this unit became NS 5411. CR 6701 sits behind #6717. CR conductor Ken Taylor took this color slide.

Going downtown
Title:  Going downtown
Description:  The ex LV in Ithaca has several blocks of street side running. Its limited to 10 MPH, and caused real havoc with traffic, especially at rush hours. This empty train came through just at dusk, tying up town for 15 minutes. In the late 1990s, a new bridge/interchange for NY 79, 89, and 96 was built, crossing the tracks and largely eliminating the problem.
