Title:  SNC 52 runs around the train in North creek
Description:  There are hopper cars being accumulated along the line in anticipation of re-opening the Tahawus mines. The tailings pile up at Tahawus is apparently pretty good aggregate for asphalt, and we could soon be seeing unit hopper trains traversing this line once again.

SNC 52
Title:  SNC 52
Description:  One of the Saratoga & North Creek's rare BL-2s idles at the station awaiting its next move. The locomotive was built by EMD in 1949, one of eight constructed for the Bangor & Aroostook Railroad. Originally BAR 552, the first 5 in its road number would later be dropped. After working in the Pine Tree State for many years, the unit would migrate to private ownership in Wisconsin, where it was repainted as Janesville & Southeastern 52. It would be displayed with sister unit 56 at the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay for a time before being acquired by Iowa Pacific, refurbished, and sent to the former D&H Adirondack Branch as SNC 52. It now serves in both freight and passenger duties on this upstate New York shortline.

Down At The Depot
Title:  Down At The Depot
Description:  SNC 52, in its D&H inspired paint scheme, looks right at home next to the historic North Creek depot. The station itself was constructed in 1874 by the Adirondack Railway and later came under the full control of the Delaware & Hudson in 1902. Perhaps the most well known event in this station's history is when vice president Theodore Roosevelt arrived and learned that he was now the President of the United States after President William McKinley passed following an assassination attempt at the Pan American Expo in Buffalo. Roosevelt boarded a special train here headed for Buffalo and was later sworn in as the next President. In 1976, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
