Description:  SU 100 gets under way at Coles after OIBU has cleared, accelerating under a cloud of smoke as Alcos were known to do. This one was originally an EL unit, and is on familiar turf. Remember Camel billboards??

Alcos on the Delaware Division
Title:  Alcos on the Delaware Division
Description:  SU 100 rolls past the industrial park in Kirkwood as it heads down the Delaware Division for Jersey. NYSW would run trains with solid Alco consists, though now that there were a lot of stack trains, SU 99 and SU 100 were becoming uncommon, so spectacles such as this were hard to find. Check out the CP box cars in the script lettering.

Every car counts
Title:  Every car counts
Description:  D&H 74 has a single car on the way up one of the branches, seen at Old State Road, just off NY 7 at the Binghamton city line. Note at far right the distant signal for the D&H crossing at BX, the signal and crossing now long out of service. This line itself will be eliminated in favor of a connection from the adjacent D&H in a couple of years. The D&H is just up the hill. The 10 foot clearance sign is for their overpass above Old State Rd.

High above
Title:  High above
Description:  BUME rolls north across the Harpursville bridge over Wylie Creek, seen from the north(geographically) side of the bridge. This is not the usual angle, which is from NY 7. This view is lit only in the long days of summer. I took advantage of the late afternoon sun to catch two B40s and an Alco from the NY 235 shoulder.

Power to head south
Title:  Power to head south
Description:  RPPY and PYRP ran with a mix of CSX and NS power south of Binghamton, though it was usually one or the other, and rarely mixed. This time its NS power, a representative example seen here at the fuel rack. Where else but Binghamton could you find EMD, GE, and Alco all coupled to each other??

Clear of the yard
Title:  Clear of the yard
Description:  RPPY has reached Shaws, the block limit station near Shaw Rd, about a mile or so south of Terrace Dr. Now clear of the East Binghamton yard, it still had a long slow ride before it could start to run, as there was a 10 MPH speed restriction almost all the way to the state line. It made for an easy chase, but not so good for the crews.

Moving now
Title:  Moving now
Description:  RPPY has cleared the slow trackage in NY, and is now getting a roll on as it runs next to the road coming into Hallstead. The long hood forward practice on NS extended to the modern GEs, which must have been a real pain for the crews.

Turning north
Title:  Turning north
Description:  PYRP is about to hit track 5, the track that diverges from track 3 to go to Bevier St and north. Despite an effort to have NYSW power lead, and a trend toward more uniform power consists, sometimes the yards would turn out a dogs breakfast, such as this set of two Guilford painted units, lightning stripe, and a yellowjacket. But theres an Alco!!
