Great spot
Title:  Great spot
Description:  This was the only shot I ever got of a train here. I was not far enough ahead of him to get a good tele shot, but still managed a decent photo, though the lead unit is partly obscured. An XBP empty coal train rolls past a farm at Andover.

Hi-low
Title:  Hi-low
Description:  Erie seemed to be unable to settle on a single type of hardward for their signals. They had searchlights, tri light clusters, traffic light types, and of course the many semaphores that were still in service at the date of this photo. Another twist was this high and low pair at Belmont, seen with an XBP coal train.

Used to be busy here
Title:  Used to be busy here
Description:  A Conrail XBP empty coal train on the Meadville Line, once ELs Mahoning Division 4th sub, crosses the ex Pennsy Buffalo Line, also a Conrail operation, at the location of X tower. Now, the tower is long gone, and its CP Olean. At one time, this was a busy place, with several dozen train per day, most of them EL. There will be half a dozen moves here today, maybe.

Once busy, now a memory
Title:  Once busy, now a memory
Description:  An XBP coal train passes Cuba Jct, once a much busier place than it is at the date of this photo. The train is on the Meadville Line, going from single track to double for the 11 miles into Olean. There were eastbound and westbound sidings here in Erie days. The empty roadbed to the left was the Erie/EL River Line, which followed the Genesee River to NT tower, near Hunt, where it joined the Buffalo Sub. It crossed the river near Belfast on one of Eries massive steel bridges. A busy route when it was EL-it was the preferred route for most frieghts, since it had a much better gradient than the main line through Wellsville-it was abandoned almost immediately after Conrail startup. They dynamited the bridge in the early 80s. Of note, and not visible in this photo, the PRR also had a branch to Rochester that left the Buffalo Line at Olean, and passed under the River Line just east of here, taking a river level route up through Letchworth Park.

Description:  I took this from the shoulder of NY 17, which follows the Meadville Line for much of the way from Belmont to Olean. Too bad they didnt run more trains here, the line has some really scenic spots.

Used to be X tower
Title:  Used to be X tower
Description:  The tower actually stood across the EL, in the northwest quadrant of the crossing, a half mile west of the Olean station. CR tore it down early in its existence when they were working furiously to downgrade the former EL lines. It really wasnt needed after the CR startup anyway, since traffic here declined from several dozen trains/day to a handful on both lines. It almost could have been made an automatic interlocking. So a once elegant towers work is now done by a guy a couple hundred miles away, and a metal box. Ah, progress!!
