First SOO power
Title:  First SOO power
Description:  Since the first grain train ran to the Port of Albany, we had been waiting for this day. The grain trains originated in Minneapolis, so we knew it was a matter of time before power from CP owned SOO Line came east. It finally happened on a Thursday night, the train going to Albany after darkness had fallen. The return trip, however was a home run. We could not have asked for a better situation. Clear sky, and the train called for 1330, setting up a westbound chase in perfect light. We followed him to Hornell. It was great. ABBU sits at the south end of Bevier St with two SOO units trailing CP 5674.

Description:  The sun is a some time thing in the Tier. We had chased this ABBU from Binghamton, with hardly a cloud in the sky, then got dinked at Hornell. Even on the good days, clouds!! I'm standing on the site of the one time Allegany Division yard, now becoming a strip mall.

Taken by surprise
Title:  Taken by surprise
Description:  ABBU had passed signal 325-1 and was slowly working toward downtown Hornell. The crowd on the bridge-look at the shadows-was focused on the approaching SOO units, and not paying attention to what was coming up behind. Suddenly BUOI popped out from under the bridge, making this meet shot.
