Album Info:For a time in the late 80's and 1990's, I was part of the Southern Tier Division of the RRE. We put out a newsletter, which in those days was done by pasting(literally) photos to an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper and copying as many as we needed for our mailing list. Since color copiers were expensive, we did ours on a standard Xerox type machine. For this effort, I took black and white photos on a sporadic basis. Here are some of the results.

Coming out
Title:  Coming out
Description:  Train 553 has left East Binghamton, and is now approaching BD, where he will cross the Tier and head north. CP Alcos were common on these trains, often six axles, though they seemed to elude me. The D&H unit is not usually a part of this effort. They must have had a bigger train than usual, or combined it with 270, which sometimes happened. Its also possible the D&H unit was being moved to Saratoga or Mohawk.
