Brent Jackson General N&W had trackage rights on Conrail and D&H all the way to Attica? Didn't know that.... 1/15/2006 4:14:15 PM
Charlie Wood General Where were you standing to get this shot? On top of the depot? 3/30/2008 12:33:07 PM
Tim Darnell General Shhh! I climbed the signal! 5/28/2008 7:14:27 AM
Paul Bishop General It was trackage rights for the D&H, not the N&W. The D&H was leasing locomotives from N&W, which was their corporate parent at the time (Dereco). 4/14/2009 9:56:32 PM
Tom Beckett General D&H acquired trackage rights on the CR Southern Tier Line at CR startup, April 1 1976. This was to provide some competition in the northeast, and allow a "friendly" connection to the west for D&H. NW run through power was common, everything from GP 9's to SD45's. I'm not aware of any NW units leased to the D&H on a formal basis. 1/11/2011 3:31:09 PM
