Leased power on BH 2
Title:  Leased power on BH 2
Description:  Sometimes NYSW would run short of power, and find themselves in the lease market. Sometimes this meant some really ratty looking diesels. Here we see a pair of ex Guilford units at Old State Rd in Port Dick heading north late in the day.

Detour
Title:  Detour
Description:  CSX would sometimes hand off overflow traffic to the NYSW. These trains, SU 403 and 404 on the Suskie, were obviously not high priority, as it would sometimes take 24 hours to get them from Jersey back onto CSX at Syracuse. Here we see one of them behind a Bright Future standard cab C40 and the surviving F45, 3636, just after taking the switch to the Syracuse branch at Chenago Forks.

CSX detour
Title:  CSX detour
Description:  During summer track work season, CSX would send detour trains over NYSW on a daily basis. Mostly these were low priority trains, usually Q 403 and 404. Q 156 was a higher priority train that often made the trip via Binghamton. We see it here passing Kirkwood Industrial Park along US 11 with a UP leader, with 46 freight and 79 stacks for Jersey.

Sometimes odd stuff shows up
Title:  Sometimes odd stuff shows up
Description:  The UP unit came in on NS; by this time, their power and BNSF were not much of a surprise. NYSW, however, did get some interesting visitors from other upstate short lines, since they did some repair work at Utica. Such is the case today, as in this VLIX C 420 in transit to somewhere at the Binghamton yard.

Side view
Title:  Side view
Description:  I got a side shot of this EL car built on an ex DLW tender frame. These were pretty solid cars, due to the heavy underframe. This one was painted close to the end, the stencil under the ACI tag showing it was done at Meadville, where EL had their system car shop, in October of 1975.

All kinds of stuff
Title:  All kinds of stuff
Description:  You never knew what would show up for power on 13T; it could be just about anything, from top of the line new power, to whatever NS had in Buffalo that would run, and off line power was not uncommon. Sometimes the home road diesels were pretty interesting, such as on todays effort, an ex CR GP 15-1 leading an NS only B32-8 and an ex NW GP 38AC. All of these units were getting to be unusual by this time. The real surprise is a GP 15 on a road train. Conrail acquired 100 of these engines from EMD in 1979; they were used systemwide on locals and yard jobs, rarely going on the road on symbol freights.

Way off
Title:  Way off
Description:  If you hustled after you got off NY 17 at Chemung, you might beat a westbound to Wellsburg, where NY 427 gradually got closer to the tracks. That approach did allow some panoramic shots, such as this 31T rolling 70 cars west, seen from the shoulder of NY 427 east of Wellsburg.

Description:  We chased an eastbound detour train, probably Q 156, or possibly Q 404, I didnt note the symbol, to Susquehanna, then caught this Q 271 there going back. We were able to grab this shot along PA 171 where the tracks go away from the road at Red Rock. Thats my then girlfriend, now wife, Diane, getting a shot of the action too.

12T with a flag
Title:  12T with a flag
Description:  The weather could have been better; it seems every time an interesting leader would show up, the weather would be horrible. This morning, its just foggy as 12T gets 46 cars underway out of Binghamton with a UP flag unit, something that was still somewhat of a novelty at the time, especially this far east.

H 88 with an undecorated unit
Title:  H 88 with an undecorated unit
Description:  NS elected to take delivery of their new GEs in primer, and paint them in their own shops, rather than wait for GE to do it, thus getting them in service quicker. I cant help think of all those Athearn units I saw in hobby shops, with "undecorated" marked on the box. Sometimes life imitates art.

Interesting stuff
Title:  Interesting stuff
Description:  An overview of QD yard shows a few interesting items. In the foreground is a set of power that came off a Goudy coal train. A trio of UP units, no stranger to coal service out west, are not that common here. Behind them is an NS SD40-2, one of the early ones that had been an NW unit originally. In the background, thats not a P&W unit. NYSW acquired some ex P&W units as part of their lease fleet. Most of them wound up working on the NYSW for a time, including this one, presently dozing away the afternoon. The NYSW proper also is showing the flag, as a yellowjacket from BH 2 comes around the corner from Bevier St, seen under the bridge in the distance.

NS ran an office car train to the event, seen here on the ex DLW side while attendees are at the event. We didnt rate the F units, but we did get a pair of really clean SDs.

Got painted
Title:  Got painted
Description:  Much of the power UP inherited from merged roads ran around in patched predecessor paint for years, and a lot of secondary power didnt get fully repainted. This ex SP tunnel motor got the full treatment, and was sent barnstorming. We see it on a military train headed west at Utica.

Coal east
Title:  Coal east
Description:  On the way back from Georgia, we stopped at the observation deck at the north end of the US 19 bridge at Fayetteville WV-the bridge they close one day a year so the base jumpers can parachute and bungee jump from its deck, 876 feet above the New River. I am not so adventurous, but Im more than willing to take train pictures from up there. I was lucky enough to catch this eastbound coal train, led by an SD 70M, from the deck.

More TOFC
Title:  More TOFC
Description:  CSX seemed to run a suprising amount of TOFC at this time, despite the industry trend toward double stacks. We see a 41 car train approaching the station.

Union Station
Title:  Union Station
Description:  The NYC station at Utica was really a union station, in that it was also used by the DLW, which came up Schuyler St through town. That part of the operation is still run by the NYSW, serving, among others, Matts Brewing Co. The last DLW train here was in the 1950s. The station is still used by Amtrak, and its a good place to see CSX action as well, such as this 91 car eastbound.
