Rounding the curve
Title:  Rounding the curve
Description:  One of our favorite spots for a photo was at Chemung. It was easy off/easy on if you were driving, as the spot was right off the exit 59 off ramp. Get your shot and go. This NU 1 behind PLM power provided the action, rolling 105 cars west around the big curve, past the old Erie station on the inside of it.

Long distance pushers
Title:  Long distance pushers
Description:  Most trains were not heavy enough to get pushers out of Scranton, and practice was to put the tonnage on and drag it up to Clarks Summit with the road power. Still, some trains got helpers, such as this 555. They would stay on all the way to Binghamton.

Past the station
Title:  Past the station

High view of an eastbound
Title:  High view of an eastbound
Description:  This is a view not typically seen, due to the lateness of the day, when the shot would be into the sun here. One advantage of the awful weather was being able to use the overcast to work the light, so we can see this 270 rolling into the curve at MP 231.

167, or is it F1G??
Title:  167, or is it F1G??
Description:  After NS took over running what had been trains 166 and 167, there were some symbol changes, though it took a while for them to become permanent. In the meanwhile, they sometimes took on NS alphabet soup symbols. They called this on F1G, seen here coming around the curve past the old Erie station.

Title:  167
Description:  One of the less seen locations is between Chemung and Wellsburg, along NY 427. Its easy enough to get to, you just have to pass up the easy overhead shot at Chemung-or get it and go like hell to beat the train there, and hope there are no slowpokes.

Rare widecab
Title:  Rare widecab
Description:  SOO had five SD60Ms, which occasionally made their way to the east. It was always good to see them, especially in the lead, which was unusual. Got lucky this day, as 164 rolls through Bevier St with not only the SOO widecab, but a WC unit as well. The irony is that WC was a SOO predecessor, but is now part of the CN system.
