A pair of new CR SD50's
Title:  A pair of new CR SD50's
Description:  Delivered by EMD in April of 1985, CR SD50 #6783 sits with a "pack" of other blue CR units. The 135 SD50 units that Conrail ordered between 1983-86 took care of the growing power demand as shipping increased following the Staggers Act passage. After the CR breakup, this loco would become NS 5448. CR conductor Ken Taylor took the color slide of this CR "pack".

Stacks in the fog
Title:  Stacks in the fog
Description:  An early October morning finds TV 301 heading west at Hiawatha Rd in Owego, passing signal 233-1, which would be removed when the new radio alarm detector was installed at Tioga Center a few years later. If you look closely, you can see the extra light below the main head. This light diplays "hot box" if the detector at Campville, MP 230, gets a hit on a hot axle, and would set the signal red. I only saw it happen once.
