Coal and a Conrail leader
Title:  Coal and a Conrail leader
Description:  By this time, its an NS unit, but there were many such still in CR paint at the time. Almost 15 years out, I appreciate even the patched units still in CR paint, though you have to appreciate the irony of CR units being renumbered and patch painted.

Title:  Catching rays
Description:  The day I was chasing this northbound coal train was mostly overcast-typical in Binghamton. As he rolled through the former north end of Dyes Siding, the sun came out for a moment, glinting off the side of the trains power.

Coal, but not for here
Title:  Coal, but not for here
Description:  A northbound coal train rolls past the old Jennison Station at Bainbridge. This power plant was an on and off D&H customer, getting most of its coal by truck. If I recall, it was closed by this date in 2001, after NYSEG sold its generating capacity(another NY State inspired boondoggle), and older, less efficient plants were shut down. This train will go to the B&M at Mohawk, and eventually on to Massachusetts.

Rolling on through
Title:  Rolling on through
Description:  A shot I liked to get, though I didnt do it often because you had to stand in the traffic lane on NY 7 to do it, was this view of a southbound coming off the Susquehanna River bridge from Sidney into Bainbridge. I braved the traffic(it was Sunday, not that it makes a lot of difference here) to get this shot of 269 with an ex Conrail leader.

Three today
Title:  Three today
Description:  Trains 268 and 269 were notable for almost always getting a pair of GEs. Once in a while, an EMD would sneak in, and almost never would there be three units or foreign power. Today is exceptional, as 268 has a trio of units, and an ex CR leader, seen on the famous high bridge.

CR where you would not expect it.
Title:  CR where you would not expect it.
Description:  A couple of years into the takeover, CR units were everywhere, and the NS trains that ran on the D&H were no exception. This is a 269 just south of Oneonta, a place that had seen almost no CR power for that roads entire existence, now getting it on a regular basis. It does look good in the snow!!
