Title:  Pulling
Description:  OIBU has gotten back on his train and is now starting to pull its 50 cars west. We have here a good view of the station area. The concrete pad behind the lead unit is the location of the Erie station. Under the middle of the overpass is the Erie freight house, the red brick building. It will be torn down in 1999. In the right background, we see the station tower on the DLW station, as well as the steel frame of the Marconi tower, which was used to mount an antenna for an early radio application. To the left of the radio tower, we see the smokestack for the station powerhouse, which not only provided heat for the station, but also for the steam lines that heated the set out cars that were dropped or picked up here.

Starting over the bridge
Title:  Starting over the bridge
Description:  The steelwork for the Chenango River bridge actually starts before the tracks are at the river bank, as the structure also vaults over Water St before reaching the water. OIBU is on this part of the bridge as we look up, about to cross the Chenango, and head out the west side.

Title:  Conrail....northbound (2)
Description:  I learned a lot about chasing trains on this line back then. It can be very difficult to keep-up and get ahead when they're up to track speed! Photo taken from US route 11 overpass just north of Collose, NY in the town of Mexico.
