Description:  By this time, the D&H Alcos were largely relegated to yard duty. It was good to see them still around, such as 5009, here pulling a cut out to BD during a switching move.

Alcos on 554
Title:  Alcos on 554
Description:  Train 554 rolls south over the high bridge at Harpursville. Im standing on the former Penn Division bridge over Wylie Creek and NY 7 to get the photo. This bridge would be removed a few years hence, and the NY 7 bridge would be replaced by a more modern structure with shoulders, making photos from there a lot easier.

Old power rules
Title:  Old power rules
Description:  One of the remaining D&H RS 36s rolls a 556 south across the diamond at BD as it heads into East Binghamton. The RS 36s did not see the road often at this point, and it would have been a very unlikely leader, though CP was not shy about running Alcos in regular service. My guess is the crew on this train came down with the PLM unit leading, and was on short time. If there was no room at the inn, the East Binghamton yardmaster likely had him tie up at Bevier St and taxied the crew to the yard. Then 5022 was sent over to get the train once there was space.

Grain to Albany
Title:  Grain to Albany
Description:  A 390 grain train to the Port of Albany rolls north near Old State Road. The empty bridge in the foreground is the old DLW Syracuse and Utica Branch. This segment of it was abandoned as part of the project that raised the overpasses at Beview St. The NYSW, who now uses the line, runs on the D&H to a point just north of here, reaching its own line via a new connecting track.

Phosphates north
Title:  Phosphates north
Description:  CSX originated a lot of phosphates in the Bone Valley area near Tampa Fla, occasionally sending a train to Montreal via the D&H. The power usually ran through, giving us a chance to see CSX units going north. The northbound trains ran as a unit train, symbolled 751. There was no southbound counterpart, as the cars came back in regular trains as they were emptied. The power ran back on the next availabe train once it reached Canada. This train is heading through Bevier St toward the tunnel now that it has met the SLN 4 at BD.

Mismatch
Title:  Mismatch
Description:  D&H 7303 is pushing a pair of Conral SD 40s toward East Binghamton. Not sure what occasioned this unusual move, but my guess would be some kind of mechanical issue that required a shop, as it was more than could be handled by a service truck.

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.

390 with SOO power leading
Title:  390 with SOO power leading
Description:  By 1992, SOO power on 390/391 trains had become pretty commonplace, so it was not a big deal to see SOO SD60s leading one, such as this train rolling up the Buffalo Runner to make a run at Belden Hill. The track leading straight into the first car of the train was once the DLW Syracuse and Utica branch, which crossed the D&H here at BX cabin.

Description:  CP for a while handled some New England coal trains with its own power in D&H hoppers. One such train, an 890, is coming around the corner on the Buffalo Runner into Bevier St yard as it starts its trip up Belden Hill. Power was typical for that traffic.

Title:  Lots of old stuff here
Description:  Train 553 rolls through BX in a scene that has some classic New York flavor. Note the Genessee Beer truck betweeb the trailing unit and the first trailer, in the background, a long time upstate NY favorite. On the railroad side, the signal that protected the crossing of the CLW and D&H at BX still stands, its lights long smashed out, but the classic mast is not giving up just yet.

Description:  On the KCS, where they dont get a lot of snow, the white did not have the issue with blending into its surroundings. On the D&H, well, that was a different story. Three ex KCS units lead a westbound 270 toward the yard at BX, doing a good job of blending in to their environment.
