Lots of clutter
Title:  Lots of clutter
Description:  The area around Cass St had a lot going on. We see OIEL about to take the switch from track 2 on the Southern Tier to the Meadville Line. There are signals on the Tier, one of them a dwarf on track 1, as well as the signal protecting Cass St for trains coming off the Meadville Line, along with the poles for power and the signals. Cass St tower, long closed, is the concrete block structure to the right of the train.

Taking the Meadville Line
Title:  Taking the Meadville Line
Description:  OIEL, the through road train on the Meadville Line, diverges off the Southern Tier at Cass St in Hornell, heading for Olean and Jamestown. This train would go into the yard at Olean and wait for a new crew. When OIEL made a crew change point, you never knew when it would roll next. There were relatively few crews on this part of the line, and the train was not high priority. We'd get lucky, and chase the coal train also in this album. OIEL would come to life again later in the day, and we'd see it passing Salamanca while we were at the museum there.

On into Pennsylvania
Title:  On into Pennsylvania
Description:  After OIEL left Jamestown, we followed west, a bit of a challenge since there are no good roads that follow the tracks. We caught up near Niobe Jct, where the Columbus & Erie, a low grade line built in the early 20th century, split from the main. This is the last point on the Erie in NY state. Wed have chased to Corry, but the light was about gone-and we had a 220 mile ride home.
