Title:  Bright red
Description:  SOO power leads a monster 167-todays train had 99 freight and 56 stack platforms-into the sun as seen from the shoulder of NY 417 just east of Addison. This shot can only be done late in the day. Usually the sun is on the other side of the train.

Getting started
Title:  Getting started
Description:  I dont recall now if I was on a day off, or this was just after work. I had regular hours, but they differed every day. This was taken on a Tuesday, so its likely it was my day off. We start close to home, on the tangent near MP 232 between Campville and Owego, with the red face of a SOO SD leading 167 west into the sun.

Long jump
Title:  Long jump
Description:  After getting the 167 at Campville, I jumped down to Smithboro, about 13 miles, taking NY 17 to exit 62, since there was no way I was beating him through Owego. I didnt want to risk getting scooped at Tioga Center, so I ran down to the west end of Smithboro, where the tracks come up to the road.

Wide view
Title:  Wide view
Description:  The next jump was an easy one. I just had to step on it. This is the view from NY 17C near the Tioga transfer station at MP 249 between Barton and Waverly. It was a good "grab and go" spot. The third unit is a classic, one of SOO's original SD 40's.

CP 498
Title:  CP 498
Description:  I knew that this train was on its way, so after my first trip to Northtown, I went home for a short while and returned later in the day. I came back in search of only one thing, the trailing SD40-2 on this train, which is confined to Canada most all the time. Today it returned to home rails, plying rail on the old SOO Line.
