NYSW 120 takes Staten Island Railway RV1 east.
Title:  NYSW 120 takes Staten Island Railway RV1 east.
Description:  SW9 120 was a former B&O unit, picked up by the NYSW when they took over SIRY service. B&O had let it go in April 1985 when they were cut off from their connection by Conrail. Suzy-Q ran the service until about 1991. NYSW #120 was delivered to the B&O 1952/53 and had friction bearing trucks that restricted it to 25 mph. It is now the American Motive Power Inc (AMPI) shop switcher in Dansville NY.

Into the yard
Title:  Into the yard
Description:  NYSW in the 1980s acquired the Rahway Valley and former B&O line to Staten Island. Base for these operations was the small B&O facility in Cranford, adjacent to the ex CNJ, over whom B&O had trackage rights. NYSW 120 has just returned from working the RV, and has crossed over the CNJ-now NJ Transit-main at Excee tower, and will be taking the switch into the yard. This was a much busier place in CNJ days, as evidenced by the signal bridge in the distance. It was then four tracks, and a place where a train could cross over all of them. B&O and Reading passenger trains passed here, as did their freights.

Excee Tower
Title:  Excee Tower
Description:  Excee tower, named for its telegraph call sign, XC, controlled the junction of the CNJ and Rahway Valley, as well as access to the small B&O yard south of the main, which also was the access to the B&Os Staten Island Rapid Transit, though most freight service was to the Port Ivory area, a freight only part of the SIRT. NYSW 120 has just come off the RV and is crossing over to reach the yard, where it will tie up.

Odd couple
Title:  Odd couple
Description:  It was unusual to see these two units together, especially since 120 spent most of its time in Jersey. I caught them together at the Binghamton shop. An RS 3 and SD 45 are peeking out from behind these two. The variety then was amazing.
