Making him wait
Title:  Making him wait
Description:  Conrail was not shy about making the D&H wait on th Tier, but occasionally practicality and common sense won out. Today is one of those days, as BUME rolls 49 cars through West BD on track 2, headed for East Binghamton, while an XCL empty coal train cools its heels on the former DLW, having come out track 3 from downtown with 35 hoppers for Clearfield PA. That's the Vestal Spur in the lower right corner, the remaining portion of what was the DLW's 70 MPH main line. It now runs a few miles out to Vestal to serve the few remaining local customers.

On the other side of town
Title:  On the other side of town
Description:  A train is rolling...with apologies to the Eagles. The big game in town that day was a BUAB with NYSW and SOO power. It was over at QD downtown, waiting on a new crew. While we all milled around contemplating our chase, the radio announced that a BUME was about to go north out of East Binghamton. Getting out of the yard is a slow process, and I was able to get to BD ahead of the train, shooting its two recently arrived PLM units.

Easing down
Title:  Easing down
Description:  KL 1 eases its 15 K Line platforms down the Buffalo Runner to QD. It will open up there to get on the Southern Tier for a run to Buffalo. We also see here the caboose on Conrail local WABH 11, and the nose of a dead NYSW C 430 just to its left. At far left is the D&H station. The Chenango St overpass crosses the whole show.

Its a CP train now
Title:  Its a CP train now
Description:  CP took over the D&H in July 1990. Stack trains continued to run through with NYSW power, an arrangement that would lead to CP power in New Jersey as well as yellowjackets in Buffalo, as we see here on this SLN 5, symbolled 255 by CP-and DHT 9 by Conrail(got all that??) rolling across the Chemung River, seen from the Clemens Center Parkway bridge.

Where semaphores once stood
Title:  Where semaphores once stood
Description:  CP 255, the SLN 5, rolls between the signal at MP 243(actually signals 242-1 and -2, MP 243 was just a little to the west), which were, up til this week, the famous twin semaphores. Its just not the same with Type Gs.
