RS3s on the 1st Belt - summer of 1970 - 2 of 3
Title:  RS3s on the 1st Belt - summer of 1970 - 2 of 3
Description:  Date approximate. The brakie is getting ready to drop off at the switch, not at the one in the foreground however, but at the one for the Kodak lead, still a few car lengths beyond the front of the train. NYC (PC) 9901 made it into PC paint, but didn't make it into the next decade. The stub track is a leftover from when the two sidings (now both south of the Ridge) once extended across the Ridge. Those two sidings, plus a team track (on the other side of the train) and a lumber yard spur (this side) account for why the Kodak lead switch is so far down. All is gone today except for the main and the Kodak lead.

Title:  RS3s on the 1st Belt - summer of 1970 - 3 of 3
Description:  Date approximate. The switch has been flipped and now we're backing into Kodak. Note the advertising on the billboards: Lark's Gas-Trap Filter is being promoted as an Anti-Pollution Device, while Ford is pushing Pintos. Either one could've killed ya in the 70's !!!
