Everything. As we look at BUABs pushers, and EMD lease unit and a red SOO SD 40, note also the rest of this view. I am standing on what was the DLW Utica Branch, now abandoned. The track in the foreground is the new connection from the D&H to the NYSWs ex DLW line; you can see the Old State Rd crossing at far left. This was done as part of a project to eliminate the three overpasses at Bevier St, one ex DLW, two D&H, none of which was high enough to clear a standard 13'6" trailer, making access to businesses on Broad Av a challenge. As part of that project, the NYSW gained access to its line via a new connection north of Bevier St, requiring its trains to go through that yard. The D&H was largely unaffected, except for realigning its tracks onto the new overpass. The train looks like its climbing to the sky due to the downgrade on the NYSW connector; its not as bad as it looks.
