Jet powered
Title:  Jet powered
Description:  Guilford established a pair of trains, JET 1 and JET 2 to make some kind of effort to hasten freight velocity to New England. In an optimistic approach by the marketing types, these were called JET 1 westbound, and JET 2 eastbound. Here we see JET 1 coming through Bevier St with 102 cars. It will take the Buffalo Runner to QD, where a new crew will get on for the trip to Buffalo, avoiding the yard and its interinable terminal delay.

Western NY panorama
Title:  Western NY panorama
Description:  One of my favorite locations was this shot from the NY overpass just east of Canaseraga. It shows the Erie split level main, as well as a great view looking east. SLN 5 rolls west behind a pair of Springfield Terminal units to complete the scene.

In the valley
Title:  In the valley
Description:  SLN 5 in the Canisteo valley. This is not normally a well lit shot, as its dark side most of the time. I took advantage of the Southern Tier gloom to get the angle not normally seen, and this panoramic view of the valley.
