Classic scene
Title:  Classic scene
Description:  This shot shows some of the remnants of the south end of Bevier St, on the east side of Binghamton. The signal protects what was at one time the crossing at BX, where train 390 is rolling north in this view taken from alongside the Agway plant, seen at right. Agway was an active Conrail customer at the time of the photo(and sometimes got grain in Erie boxcars). Were standing on the main track of the DLW Syracuse and Utica line, which crossed the D&H where the train is moving. Behind me out of sight is the yard that serviced that line, YO yard. It was abandoned long before this photo was taken. The train is on the D&H, which bears to the east into Bevier St yard before going up to Belden tunnel and the capital district. Bevier St was adjacent to the DLW YO yard. The crossing at BX was removed in the early 80s and changed to a set of crossovers, with the tracks now forming a wye that allowed trains to go either to the ex DLW East Binghamton yard, or to the Buffalo Runner, the line this train is on. The NYSW, which had acquired the DLW trackage north of Binghamton, connected to the Buffalo Runner through a switch, under 390's third unit, to access its yard at the east end of Eries QD yard, near Liberty St. In 1990, the overpasses on Bevier St were modified, with both the NYSW and CP going onto one bridge that was high enough to clear a standard 13'6" truck, eliminating the two D&H spans and the DLW bridge to the west of those. The NYSW now used the D&H alignment to reach its ex DLW line via a connection north of Bevier St, with the DLW line through YO yard abandoned. The signals remained up-there's one on the D&H side as well-into the nid 1990's, though they had been inactive for many years by that time.

Turning the power
Title:  Turning the power
Description:  The power off a 390 grain train rolls through BD. It will reverse here, go through BD up to Bevier St, then back down onto its train, which is sitting at QD downtown. I guess the crew didnt want to ride in the SOO leader.

Front end helper
Title:  Front end helper
Description:  Typically the helpers on Belden Hill would be pushing on the rear, making for an easy cutoff at the tunnel, which is behind me. For some reason, this 84 car 892 train got its helper running long hood in the lead. Must have been a beast going up, though an easy ride coming back. MP 599, to the left of the train, is the mileage from Mattawamkeag Maine, where MEC meets the one time CP line from Montreal to St John NB.
