MAN 2453 and ex-NYC 8223 With An NRHS Convention Special
Title:  MAN 2453 and ex-NYC 8223 With An NRHS Convention Special
Description:  The 1998 NRHS Convention was based in Syracuse, New York, and hosted by the Central New York Chapter. Nevertheless, because of Syracuse's close proximity to Utica, the Utica & Mohawk Valley Chapter also played a key role, along with the Adirondack Railway Preservation Society (ARPS). Central New York, regrettably, doesn't have the same range of attractions that Pennsylvania has, but the local tourist railroads, as well as some freight railroads, gave their all to ensure the best convention experience possible. The biggest event was, in my opinion, the re-opening of the Adirondack Scenic Railroad from Utica-Thendara, which had only been run once before since restoration, in 1997, when it was run for volunteers and dignitaries (the railroad is run completely by volunteers from the ARPS and NRHS). I worked the excursion, in my dual role as an NRHS and ARPS member, as a trainman, and I shot these photos for the railroad's use. When they had no use for them, I stored them, and here they are published for the first time. These runs went off without any major problems, even if subsequent months saw delayed trains due to late trackwork, and obviously everyone was quite excited at this vast expansion of the Adirondack's role as a tourist railroad. I took all of these pictures on the way back to Utica, so this one was taken at Thendara. The lead locomotive, an ALCO C425, was lent to us by the Mohawk, Adirondack, & Northern Railroad(MA&N), who run the freight services between Utica and Remsen, on the same route that we took.

NYC 8223 And MA&N 2453
Title:  NYC 8223 And MA&N 2453
Description:  The 1998 NRHS Convention was based in Syracuse, New York, and hosted by the Central New York Chapter. Nevertheless, because of Syracuse's close proximity to Utica, the Utica & Mohawk Valley Chapter also played a key role, along with the Adirondack Railway Preservation Society (ARPS). The biggest event was, in my opinion, the re-opening of the Adirondack Scenic Railroad from Utica-Thendara, which had only been run once before since restoration, in 1997, when it was run for volunteers and dignitaries (the railroad is run completely by volunteers from the ARPS and NRHS). This was on the way back at Nelson Lake, a station that's privately owned, and while on the employee timetable, no longer an active station.

MAN 2453 (date could be wrong)
Title:  MAN 2453 (date could be wrong)
Description:  This was taken at the 1998 National Railway Historical Society (NRHS) National Convention, although not in Syracuse, where the convention was based. Rather, I took this in Thendara, NY, at that time the northern end of the Adirondack Scenic Railroad, after having worked (as a Trainman) on the first public passenger train (at least to NRHS members from around the country) to run from Utica to Thendara since 1981. The locomotive (this one, as well as ex-NYC #8223) had been run around, and I took this picture of the cab before reboarding for the trip back to Utica.

Description:  NYSW moved a variety of power around, and also worked on some of it for other roads at their Utica shop. As a result sometimes some odd things would turn up. One of them was this Mohawk Adirondack & Northern Alco that was working on BH 2 at Bevier St.
