At this time, Conrail would not let NYSW change crews out on the main for the D&H to take the train west. This was not without some justification, as the new crew could be anywhere from ten minutes to ten hours from getting on the train. As a result, NYSW had to back its train up into Bevier St, or onto their Utica Branch for the crew change. SLN 5 is doing just that at QD with three ex BN SD 45s. There more than enough room for the 55 Sea Land stacks and 18 freight. Lead unit 6366 doesn't seem to be sure what railroad it wants to run for.
