New look for BUME
Title:  New look for BUME
Description:  CP power started to show up on D&H trains on July 26, when an acid train ran from Montreal to Baltimore. Before long, it was showing up on the Tier as well, as we see with this BUME going east along NY 17C.

Erie relic
Title:  Erie relic
Description:  MEBU and 46 cars pass the water tank base at Addison. Eries last steam was in 1953, but in 1990, the concrete base is still standing, a testimony to its builders. In 2015, when I was last by there, it was still standing.

Title:  New look
Description:  A pair of CP SD40-2s roll MEBU west under the NY 427 overpass at Chemung, the late afternoon sun lighting up the red diesels. Just like the Erie and EL who ran this line for many years, there's a high and wide right behind the power.

Wide ride
Title:  Wide ride
Description:  MEBU rolls east of Waverly, where EL had a center siding. Conrail removed it early on in their ownership of the Tier, but never realigned the tracks. There was an identical situation at Canaseraga, west of Hornell, where there was also once a center siding.

Lots of changes
Title:  Lots of changes
Description:  Actually, one big one. The area along the fence line to the left of oncoming MEBU was approximately where the DLW main line ran prior to 1959. Consolidation of facilities with the Erie that year eliminated it. The line would regain its right of way a few miles to the west at Gibson, near NY 414. Now its a cow pasture. The Southern Tier Line itself will change yet again in a few years. Conrail will single track this segment, eliminating the small bridge here in favor of a set of corrugated metal culverts. How things change...

Today I beat him
Title:  Today I beat him
Description:  I didnt do the shot here at Wellsburg often, mostly because I could not race down NY 427 from Chemung fast enough, or, alternately, on NY 17 to the Lowman crossover, which was a mile from the tracks, to beat a train here after shooting it at Chemung. The dimensional load behind the power has restricted the trains speed, so today I get lucky, and we have MEBU rolling into the afternoon sun.

Heavy power for KL 1
Title:  Heavy power for KL 1
Description:  KL 1 was usually a short train-rarely more than 50 platforms-and typically got a single unit, one of a very few trains to be so lightly powered. So this KL 1 with three units for 10,000 HP for its 25 platforms was a surprise.

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.

Snowy coal
Title:  Snowy coal
Description:  A shot I wanted to do, but never seemed to be in the right place for, was this shot from NY 17C in Campville. It didnt turn out as well as I had hoped, as the lighting was a problem most of the day, and there was more clutter than at first glance. Either way, heres a 98 car UB series coal train behind the usual set of SD40 types.

Coal train with a surprise
Title:  Coal train with a surprise
Description:  Many of the coal trains in this period ran with CP power, but sometimes NS would let a couple of units run through. The GP 38 was an oddity-almost all the NS power on these trains was 6 axle-but the stranger in town was a surprise, and CP tunnel motor.
