Title:  Working uphill
Description:  Train 168 works hard behind an ex Conrail SD 50 and a GE as it rolls a mix of 107 TOFC cars and stack platforms toward Belden tunnel.

Description:  A trio of SOO units lead 253 north at Bainbridge. Its an interesting mix of power, with one of SOOs 5 SD60Ms leading, and a pair of straight SD60's for power.

Friendly wave
Title:  Friendly wave
Description:  In the first few years after 9/11, it was not uncommon for train crews to be antagonistic toward fans. Some of the CSX River Line crews seemed to take great pleasure in calling in anyone who appeared trackside with a camera. Thus, it was nice to get a wave from an engineer, as here with 165 at Nowlan Rd.

413 rolls through BX
Title:  413 rolls through BX
Description:  At one time, this location was BX tower, where the D&H crossed the DLW Syracuse & Utica lines. Its been modified quite a bit since then-the ex DLW is now a switching lead for the feed plant, and the DLW YO yard is long gone. Even the D&H Bevier St yard is a shadow of itself. Train 413 starts north to Montreal, passing the Agway plant here with 73 cars.

Tiptoe thru the tulips
Title:  Tiptoe thru the tulips
Description:  OK, so its Queen Annes Lace, but that doesnt make a good song lyric. A 253 is working 76 cars uphill at Nowlan Rd in Sanitaria Springs behind a set of SDs picking their way through the floral splendor. This is the same train as in "Big Sky" but with a different angle and focal length. How much difference a change in perspective makes.

Three of them
Title:  Three of them
Description:  There were relatively few units painted for the CP eastern lines subsidiary, called St Lawrence & Hudson, which encompassed the D&H and lines east of Montreal. Some of those were captive to the D&H-a handful of GP 38s and some GP 9us as well as a handful of SD 40s. It was not common to see them together for some reason, even the captive power. Occasinally, two would be on the same train; this was a rarity, D 22 rolling south with three STLH units.
