Lease power galore
Title:  Lease power galore
Description:  And a few NYSW units, including both F45s. There are a few other odds and ends in this shot taken from the trailer park next to the yard, including EMD test bed PLM 3041, and RS 36 5009, both partly visible. I was not able to get the numbers, but there is also a D&H GP 38 and a C424 back in the line.

High view of an eastbound
Title:  High view of an eastbound
Description:  This is a view not typically seen, due to the lateness of the day, when the shot would be into the sun here. One advantage of the awful weather was being able to use the overcast to work the light, so we can see this 270 rolling into the curve at MP 231.

Front end helper
Title:  Front end helper
Description:  Typically the helpers on Belden Hill would be pushing on the rear, making for an easy cutoff at the tunnel, which is behind me. For some reason, this 84 car 892 train got its helper running long hood in the lead. Must have been a beast going up, though an easy ride coming back. MP 599, to the left of the train, is the mileage from Mattawamkeag Maine, where MEC meets the one time CP line from Montreal to St John NB.
