Waiting to get in
Title:  Waiting to get in
Description:  Lack of yard space sometimes made it necessary for trains to be parked outside the yard. This BFOA is on Conrail track 3 waiting for space in the yard. A yard crew will come out and get it when theres room. NS power was typical.

Hi hood classics
Title:  Hi hood classics
Description:  I dont usually shoot mid consist power, but these NW SD45s were becoming rare, and too good to resist. They were in the consist of BFOA that was parked on track 4 waiting for yard space. Dont recall at this point-almost 30 years later-if they were running or dead in tow. Nice to think they might still be working.
