Long stacks
Title:  Long stacks
Description:  Conrail would not let the D&H/NYSW stack trains change crews on their main, so the trains had to pull into one of the yards. This SLN 4 is pulled down to Terrace Drive, its train stretched all the way back out to the north end. It will be a long back up move to get back out onto the Tier to go east at BD.

Holiday
Title:  Holiday
Description:  In recent years, some railroads have pretty much shut down, with only essential operations running. Apparently, Sea Land stacks were not essential, as this SLN 3 is backed onto the Utica Branch, waiting for a D&H crew that will come on later this evening for the run to Buffalo.

Turning move
Title:  Turning move
Description:  A set of power has come out of East Binghamton and across CR at BD, and will shortly clear the crossovers at the south end of Bevier St. Then it will go back down to QD, reverse and go through town on the Tier to get back to the yard. Guess they really wanted the NYSW B 40 leading.

Why they turned the power
Title:  Why they turned the power
Description:  Walter Rich put out a directive when the NYSW started running the D&H that NYSW painted units were to lead wherever practicable. This power set is being turned to get the B 40s in the lead. The unit on the other end is a leased GATX GP 38, so its also possible the crew wanted the new unit to run from.

Today we have some of it as a BUAB with NYSW and D&H power holds track 2, waiting to crossover and take the Buffalo Runner at QD, while a ballast train heads for tie up on the DLW main.
