Coal east and a special signal
Title:  Coal east and a special signal
Description:  A UNG coal train bound for NYSEG at Johnson City rolls east at Campville. The signal at right is notable for its hot box warning light, which is seen below the signal head. There was a hot box detector a mile to the east at MP 230.48 on track 1. If there was a hit, it would change the signal here to yellow, and the light underneath would light up with "hot box". It would also change the next signal, 233-1, at Hiawatha Road about 1.5 mile west, to red. That signal also had a hot box light. This detector predated the radio alarm detectors common nowadays, and the axle temps would read out on a tape in the Hornell dispatchers office. The train would have to call the dispatcher, who would review the tape, and tell the crew which axles to check. I saw this about a month after this photo. I was chasing TV 201 here when the signal dropped to approach, and the hot box light went on. Interesting system.

Work train
Title:  Work train
Description:  The guys who make it possible for the coal train to run go east on track 1 at Campville in a blaze of color as the JC coal train waits. The railfan chase vehicle is at far right. I was a route driver for a commercial laundry, which allowed me some freedom to watch the action while working. I didn't waste an opportunity.

Coal empties
Title:  Coal empties
Description:  Conrail symbolled the moves to the Ithaca Branch with a variety of numbers, depending on what job had the task of running the trains to the NYSEG plant in Ludlowville. Typically, it would be a Corning based crew, but sometimes it was called WAIT 2. Today, its WACG02 bringing the train off the Lehigh Secondary and through the crossovers onto the Tier.
