Ready for handover
Title:  Ready for handover
Description:  SLN 4 sits at QD after arriving from Buffalo. It will get an NYSW crew here for the remainder of the trip to Little Ferry. This is probably not 6542s first trip to Binghamton. BN power ran through on EL for several years, and their SD 45s were frequent visitors.

Borrowed and blue
Title:  Borrowed and blue
Description:  One result of the NYSW operation of the D&H was that the power all worked in the same pool, and it was common to see D&H power on the NYSW in any kind of service, such as this BH 1 yard job working at the NYSW's ex DLW yard "YO" near the Binghamton Agway.

On the air
Title:  On the air
Description:  Sometimes NYSW would cut the power off an MEBU and take it to the yard, leaving one unit on to keep the air pumped up. The new power(or sometimes the power it came in with) would come out, couple on, and go west. Today, an ex Reading GP 39 has the honors of keeping the brakes charged at the south end of Bevier St.

DLW side
Title:  DLW side
Description:  BUME, looking like NYSW has a pool with BN, rolls west on track 3, the former DLW westbound main, passing the DLW station on the right, and the Erie freight house on the left. The station is still standing, serving multiple purposes for new owners. The freight house was torn down several years later, and replaced with a small building used by local crews. Track 3 was sometimes used if there was traffic on the Erie main between BD and West BD. Also in this view, we see the station power plant, the low brick building with the concrete stack; and the Marconi tower, an early effort at radio communications. The Lackawanna got into radio early, due to the weather related issues with lineside wires that came with the heavy winters in the region.

All 45's.
Title:  All 45's.
Description:  PYRP starts out of East Binghamton, the train having been worked here, and NYSW power put on. The CSX or NS power it came in with from the south will turn here and go back on the next RPPY. The train has a full complement of 45's today, including an F 45 and SDP 45.

ABBU rolls west
Title:  ABBU rolls west
Description:  ABBU, an empty grain train originating at the Port of Albany, has come out track 3 and now moves onto the Southern Tier Line at West BD, connecting off former DLW tracks to former Erie tracks at this point. Power is a mix of NYSW and NS, the NS C30-7 being on of about two dozen they committed to NYSW to help with their directed service operation of the D&H.

All mixed up
Title:  All mixed up
Description:  MEBU rolls off track 3-the ex DLW-onto the Southern Tier at West BD behind what was becoming an odd mix of power since the new B 40s arrived. One of them is here, trailing behind an hand me down SD 45 and borrowed NW painted NS C30-7. The former DLW main is in the foreground, now a spur ending a mile across the river in Vestal.
