Hiding out in Hillburn
Title:  Hiding out in Hillburn
Description:  BUOI is working the Hillburn yard, just west of Suffern on the former Erie, just 31 miles from Jersey City. The third unit, 6640 shares a number with an ex BN F45 on the NYSW. I saw both within a couple of weeks of each other. Never caught them at the same time, though.

Scenic LV
Title:  Scenic LV
Description:  The LV stayed pretty much intact east of Sayre PA, though between there and Allentown there was not much traffic after Conrail started. West of there, much of the railroad was pulled up, except for a few sections here and there. Probably the most important was what became the Ithaca Branch under Conrail, the line from Sayre up through Van Etten Jct, then on to ithaca. It served a NYSEG generating station at Milliken, and an adjacent Cargill salt mine, as well as some local customers in Ithaca. Sometimes cars for the uplake customers would be combined, which is what we see here. WAIT 2 rolls north with a salt block head out, with about 90 coal hoppers behind. It will tie up traffic in Ithaca for 20 minutes when it rolls through town.

Last of the Lehigh
Title:  Last of the Lehigh
Description:  The LV west of Van Etten Jct was abandoned almost wholesale shortly after CR start up-just too many routes to Buffalo-and really, the line west of Allentown was largely a ghost line, with just a few locals at Coxton, and one train each way daily covering what remained of the line as far as Sayre. One segment west of Sayre that stayed active was the line to Ithaca, which hosted several coal trains each week to the NYSEG generating station at Ludlowville, and to a Cargill salt mine. The salt was occasionally combined with the coal, but often not, and ran as WAIT2 west of Sayre. Here we see the WAIT2 near Van Etten, en route to the Cargill mine.

Passing by
Title:  Passing by
Description:  OIBU, on the left, has done its Binghamton work, and is now holding on track 1 as a late running TV 303 rolls past on track 2. It will cross over here, and run ahead of OIBU for a crew change and go at Gang Mills. The signal at right controls track 3(ex DLW) where it joins the ex Erie track 2 for the trip west. This was part of the West BD interlocking, installed in 1959 when the Erie and DLW consolidated facilities on the Tier.

Conrail with Southern Pacific
Title:  Conrail with Southern Pacific
Description:  I really wish I could tell you the unit number of the Southern Pacific locomotive. I did'nt have the sense to think about it back then, even though I thought it was pretty cool to see it in this area. I will take a guess that it's an SD45T-2. The train is westbound on track 2 at CP 300.
