Out of the tunnel
Title:  Out of the tunnel
Description:  The 164 we saw from on high is now clearing the Belden Tunnel, and will be in Binghamton in about 15 minutes as it eases 3 stack platforms and 97 freight down the hill. CP has assigned a GE to the train this day, an increasingly common occurrence.

Through the trees
Title:  Through the trees
Description:  A northbound 8858 coal train grinds up the hill toward the tunnel, peeking out from the trees at Depot Hill Rd. The difference between winter and summer is apparent here. In the winter, you can see the train stretched out down the hill. In the summer, hardly at all.

413 on the hill
Title:  413 on the hill
Description:  A location not often seen, probably due to other more scenic/interesting locations being available, is at Hancock Rd in Santiaria Springs. Here we see CP 413 working its way to the tunnel on a summer morning.

Clean power
Title:  Clean power
Description:  This unit got repainted about four times over the 15 years I saw it on the Tier. Here it is in the "golden rodent" scheme, leading 75 cars of train 413 north at Nowlan Rd. Note the pilot is cut out on the edges so it can run on Metro North, which CP was doing at the time, with trains 416/417 from Saratoga to Fresh Pond.
