East side
Title:  East side
Description:  If a train was going fast enough, or I got stuck behind some slowpoke-its amazing the number of people who drive like they just dont care if they ever get where theyre going-I usually could not beat a train to downtown Waverly with its model railroad like buildings. So I had to go with other options. In this case, I grabbed the shot from about where the Tier crossed over the Ithaca Secondary, the former LV main. A SOO unit heading into the sun with a big train(99 freight, and 56 stack platforms) looks good in the late afternoon

Working it
Title:  Working it
Description:  Train 413 rolls north with a big train of 110 cars behind the usual mix of SDs, seen at Depot Hill Rd. This was a good spot for a photo, as it had good options on angle, it was pretty scenic, and was easy to get in and out of.

Interesting power
Title:  Interesting power
Description:  SD40 types?? Really?? This train has two that are interesting to CP fans. The middle unit is the obvious one, an SD40-2F "red barn". The lead unit is one of the six acquired from the KCS, repainted and renumbered in the 5400s. The trailing unit?? Just run of the mill 40-2. The train is coming off the Susquehanna River bridge and about to cross under Conklin Av and enter East Binghamton yard.
