MP 250
Title:  MP 250
Description:  CP trai 391 rolls past Erie milepost 250 as it approaches Waverly. There must have been a slow order, as this is only 2 1/2 miles west of the semaphore shot at Barton. Id catch him again twice before Waverly, and again at Chemung.

Hard to get
Title:  Hard to get
Description:  There was a semaphore on track 2, 245-2, that you had to cross a field to reach. As a result, I did not shoot it much. Heres a from the road look as 391 passes, the board seen between the two diesels.

391 and another semaphore
Title:  391 and another semaphore
Description:  There were a lot of Erie semaphores still in service at the time. This is the third one I shot this train with that day. The pipe hanging down from the signal was for the hot box detector indicator light, now removed since new radio alarm detectors had been installed a couple years before.

Arriving from Jersey
Title:  Arriving from Jersey
Description:  Tain 255, the Saturday Sea Land train originating at Little Ferry as SLN 5 on the NYSW, rolls through BD as it approaches the NYSW office for a crew change as the faithful observe from trackside. This was a pretty reliable late morniing arrival at Binghamton, and I will spend several hours following this train west. By this time, CP power running through to Jersey was pretty common. Today's power set is an interesting mix of hand me downs. The leader is an ex GATX leaser that came from MP origingally; the second unit is an ex Greater Winnipeg Water District unit; the SOO unit is original to the road, the only such on today's train; and the trailing unit is an ex KCS unit. We got lucky today, as two of the used units have been repainted, making for a much more attractive train. The Dicks Sporting Goods store is the original one in the chain and is still open there.

Lumber Rd
Title:  Lumber Rd
Description:  One of the best locations you cant shoot from anymore is the Lumber Rd overpass in Gang Mills. It was at the east throat of the yard, and offered a great view of westbounds most of the day. You could also watch some of the yard action, and see the engine house. When NY rebuilt US 15/NY 417-the highway to the left-the bridge was removed, making shots like this impossible. The bare spot on the hillside in the distance is where the NY 17 bypass is being built. It will take through traffic off Dennison Highway for the short stretch it still ran downtown in Corning, part of the project that will enable NY 17 to become I 86. It will open in October 1995, to everyones relief-especially the fans, since it will allow the chase to continue with a hope of catching a train before reaching Addison.

Rolling to BD
Title:  Rolling to BD
Description:  Train 261 typically got SOO SD60s. To balance the trailer pool-the trains carried more eastbound traffic than westbound-some days a 261X would run. This train seemed to get older power, usually SOO SD40s. Todays extra is typical, rolling off the Susquehanna River with a pair of SOO SD40-2s pulling 82 TOFC and 6 COFC cars. As was fairly common, its late morning on a Saturday, and I will spend most of the afternoon chasing this train west. The big building behind the train is the Binghamton Psychiatric Center.
