New order
Title:  New order
Description:  As CP took over operation of the D&H, it moved in its own power and operating people, but time was needed for the transition, so NYSW power was still common on many trains, now mixed with CP units. This MEBU is rolling under the NY 427 overpass at Chemung behind two of each to power its 90 cars.

Bright power
Title:  Bright power
Description:  Now that CP has started to run the D&H, its power is mixing with the established power arrangements. Thus we have a pair of yellow and a pair of red units on this MEBU at the stone arch bridge in Barton.

Erie relic
Title:  Erie relic
Description:  BUME rolls past the Erie station at Tioga Center, an overlooked part of the railroad scene in that town. The station was in serious disrepair-it's a wonder Conrail left it up so long. Indeed, it would crash under its own weight in a few years. To look at Tioga Center now, it's hard to believe such a small town had a station at all.

Any other time
Title:  Any other time
Description:  But today. ABBU with the first two SOO units to come to the D&H had just passed westbound, and we were all running to our cars to get on with the chase when we heard the horn. BUME rolls through the semaphores behind a mix of NYSW and CP power. It's a horrible angle for the train, but it does a good job of showing the lenses in the semaphore blades.

Susie-Q
Title:  Susie-Q
Description:  A "training exercise" with my friend Jack Jakeman this past week-end had me reminiscing about this chase, so even though the photos are lousy, I decided to post them anyway. I believe that the NYS&W called this train the 555 back then. Of all the photos I got, not one of them reveals the number of the second engine; dang it!
