On our way
Title:  On our way
Description:  CPs trains used NS symbols west of Binghamton after they gave up the trackage rights inherited from the D&H following Conrail startup. This is 39T, which ran as a haulage train from Binghamton to Buffalo, approaching the curve at MP 220 along the rocks. Its an easy spot to get in and out of. The chase is on!!

In the corn
Title:  In the corn
Description:  I skipped my usual shots in the Owego area, opting for a shot I liked and saw many times, but didnt always have a train to shoot in that scene. Today, the light was going to be right, so I jumped on toward Tioga Center to get this shot of 39T rolling past a field of standing corn, seen from NY 17C. Its a great afternoon shot after the corn goes brown, and I made the most of it.

Head on
Title:  Head on
Description:  Theres a long tangent coming out of Smithboro, ending in a curve as the tracks come up to the road. Its an easy shot to get, right from the shoulder of NY 17C, which is what Ive done here as the train comes straight at me.

Back side of town
Title:  Back side of town
Description:  Waverly was one of my favorite spots. You had to hustle to get here from Smithboro or Barton, since you had only two lane NY 17C to work with. From Tioga Center, it was a little easier, as you could use NY 17/I 86 for a fast run to Waverly. The shot here has this magnificent backdrop of old buildings, and would make a great model railroad project. 39T passes the model set as it moves onto single track.

Great curve
Title:  Great curve
Description:  Five miles west of Waverly is this shot at Chemung. It is also an easy catch, since it is on the NY 427 overpass immediately off the NY 17 off ramp. The bonus here is that you have the option of getting back on the highway and bolting for Elmira, or you can flip around and take NY 427 west for a couple of possible shots en route to Wellsburg, though youll miss any shot at Elmira by doing so.

Wide open
Title:  Wide open
Description:  The are here is called Big Flats, which, while its not the wide open spaces of Kansas, is a good sized open space for the region, a place not known for level ground. At one time, there were two double track lines here, the Erie, on which we see 39T, and the Lackawanna, beyond the train, and now completely obliterated. Since 1992, there has been but a single track here. View is from the NY 352 overpass.

Big country(for NY)
Title:  Big country(for NY)
Description:  New York is not known for its grand vistas in way that, say, New Mexico or Colorado is. But here is a place called, appropriately, Big Flats, which is pretty much what it sounds like. We see westbound train 10T about to pass under the NY 352 bridge in a sweeping view of the Chemung River valley.
