Good looking power
Title:  Good looking power
Description:  Once the NYSW decided to paint their power, they put together some good looking consists. This SLN 5 has just pulled up to QD, and now that the rear of the train has cleared BD, it will back its 50 platforms and 4 freight into the D&H yard to change power and crews and roll for Buffalo. The power, an SD 45/F 45/SD 45 set, looks good in yellowjacket paint.

Even GP 30s
Title:  Even GP 30s
Description:  Chessies contribution to the NYSW during this period was mostly road power on stack trains-not surprising since they owned Sea Land at the time. The trains came off the ex B&O at Buffalo, and the power usually ran through to Jersey. Anything could show up, though it was typically GP 40s, but other power would make an appearance, such as this GP 30 leading HAN 2 taking the Buffalo Runner at QD, as seen from the Chenango St overpass.

Unusual power
Title:  Unusual power
Description:  Even with all the odd and obscure power coming through Binghamton, this was a surprise. Big GE's were almost unknown on these trains, so to catch not only a C30-7, but a U30C, which were becoming rare by then, on a stack was really a treat. SLN 3(DHT 9 on Conrail) takes to the Tier for its run to Buffalo.

High Iron
Title:  High Iron
Description:  SLN 5 rolls west behind a trio of SD 45s on the Southern Tier between Johnson City and Endwell. Heavy rail, deep ballast, big power. Looks like the major leagues. This was a good photo spot, as it was easily accessible from NY 17, as well as NY 17C, locally known as the George F Highway, which parallelled the tracks here.

MEBU in the corn
Title:  MEBU in the corn
Description:  This field in Owego was a favorite vantage point. There was a good, open view of the tracks, and the crops changed periodically, so it was always a new view from season to season, and year to year. Heres MEBU with a pair of GEs bracketing one of NRLs F 45s. How about that Rio Grande auto rack head out??

Out of the woods
Title:  Out of the woods
Description:  Just east of MP 233 there is a short stand of trees on either side of the tracks. The anticipation builds as you hear the train approaching, then burst from the shade. Tele view from Miller Beach Rd of MEBU.

Wide view
Title:  Wide view
Description:  A view of MEBU coming though Waverly shows the lay of town. On the right is CR customer Leprino Foods. On the left is the row of buildings down town, just beyond the Fulton St crossing. The train is about to pass Ted Clark's Busy Market, a Waverly landmark, just out of the photo to the left.
