Unlikely combination

Description:  One of those power sets that if you had said this would happen, NYSW and SOO power together, youd have been laughed at. Here it is. BUAB arrives at Binghamton, seen on the Chenango River bridge on a Sunday morning.

Odd combination
Title:  Odd combination
Description:  If you had said, in 1980, that the NYSW would be running high horsepower diesels on the D&H, and theyd be tied to SOO units, theyd have called the funny farm to come get you. In 1990, there it was. BUAB with one of the odder power sets any of us had seen, rolls under the signal gantry at Afton with an Albany bound grain train.

Stone bridge
Title:  Stone bridge
Description:  One place I liked, but was hard to shoot because of the trees, was the NY 7 overpass north of Sanitaria Springs. The attractive arch broidge was really photogenic, but if there were more than two units on the train, you could not get them all. BUAB had four, but I thought Id take advantage of the bare trees to get a shot of an unusual power set here.

Rolling to BD
Title:  Rolling to BD
Description:  Train 261 typically got SOO SD60s. To balance the trailer pool-the trains carried more eastbound traffic than westbound-some days a 261X would run. This train seemed to get older power, usually SOO SD40s. Todays extra is typical, rolling off the Susquehanna River with a pair of SOO SD40-2s pulling 82 TOFC and 6 COFC cars. As was fairly common, its late morning on a Saturday, and I will spend most of the afternoon chasing this train west. The big building behind the train is the Binghamton Psychiatric Center.
