Good ride  Contributor's Pick!       
THe D&H and B&M had run through power from Mechanicville to Oneonta, though sometimes the power would get to Binghamton or even farther, given the condition of D&H diesels. Most of the time, it was battered GP 9s, with GP 38s showing up from time to time. Today, this crew got lucky, drawing a set of spanking new B&M GP 40-2s, the last new power the B&M would get as an independent road. This train was a tough chase, especially on two lane NY 7-this was before I 88 was built-and this was the only shot I got of him.
