Old style
Title:  Old style
Description:  In todays world of sterile rights of way-pole lines gone, new signals, etc, the Tier was a throwback. As a backwater of a large system, it did not get the attention of the ex Pennsy, or the NYC, and for most of Conrail's existence, except for the power and rolling stock, looked almost exactly like the EL. One such scene is near MP 320 in Adrian, where we see OIEL rolling along the poles-the wires were still active-and theres even a semaphore in the distance.

Good chase
Title:  Good chase
Description:  OIEL was a hard train to get. Sometimes it ran before dawn in the Tier, so photo ops were limited. Another inhibiting factor was that it would often yard at Gang Mills, and a crew would not be called until much later in the day. I was fortunate on this cold(10 degrees) Saturday morning to catch it just as the light got good, and chase to Gang Mills. Here it is passing the semaphore at MP 259.

Down the valley
Title:  Down the valley
Description:  OIEL approaches the signal at MP 325, one of a variety of styles on the Erie, which seemed to be schizophrenic when it came to signal specs. There were these "traffic light" types, targets, and semaphores. The train is leaving the Canisteo valley behind, and will shortly be in Hornell, where it will go west on the ex Erie main to Olean and Jamestown. Still kicking myself for not chasing it there, instead of following the more mundane BUOI east.

Tight space
Title:  Tight space
Description:  OIEL rolls along the narrow right of way between the cliff, road, and river. The tight proximity of all these features made the Canisteo a photographic dream.
