Short train, big valley
Title:  Short train, big valley
Description:  Train 557 rolls under the NY 352 overpass at Big Flats with its short train of 9 COFC, 7 TOFC and 7 freight. The small bridge the train is crossing was replaced with a culvert soon after this scene was recorded. The line here is now single track.

Easy shot
Title:  Easy shot
Description:  Train 557 rolls west past the old Erie station at Chemung. This was one of my favorite shots, as it was really easy to get. The view is right off NY 17, just up the ramp and a right turn, there you are.

On the rocks
Title:  On the rocks
Description:  One place I didnt shoot a lot of trains, partly because it was hard to beat a train to it after getting the shot at Chemung, and partly because the view was in shadow much of the day, was here at Wellsburg. In the summer, in late afternoon, this shot was possible. Wish I could have shot it in good light in the winter when the rocks were iced over.

Title:  Late afternoon 557
