Meeting the local
Title:  Meeting the local
Description:  H2A dabbled around Owego long enough that it was met by several other trains, including this somewhat overpowered 47 car 41T. The action is seen from the parking lot of the Owego Erie station, at the time a restaurant. Good lunch there that day!!

Local in the snow
Title:  Local in the snow
Description:  A former CR GP15 and a GP 38 have 4 cars of local H2A(I swear, NS picks their symbols out of a hat!!) under control at Owego. The train is based in Elmira, and works as far east as Owego, much as CR's WEEL39 did in years past. They will be switching the Ward & Van Scoy mill, whose tower is seen behind the train.

You know where you are
Title:  You know where you are
Description:  H2A is in the siding, which acts like a running track, at MP 236, just east of the Owego station. They are working the Ward & Van Scoy grain mill, and will soon head west after meeting 41T and CPs D 22.

Oddball
Title:  Oddball
Description:  Conrail had 100 GP15-1s, all new from EMD in 1979, which were scattered about the system in local service. Most of them survived to the split, with NS and CSX each getting some. CSX had some already, former Chessie units. On NS, they were orphans, and wound up in odd places. One is working the west end of local H2A(I swear, NS picks the letters and numbers out of a hat when they set up their train symbols) passing the Erie station, at right, in Owego.

Once there were two
Title:  Once there were two
Description:  H2A rolls toward Ayers Rd in Tioga Center. Once there were two railroads here, the EL and the LV. The Lehigh was pulled up almost immediately at Conrail startup, leaving just the EL line, on which the train is running. The LV right of way is where the car is parked.
