Description:  A pair of new C40-8s aided by an SD 50 head north through Waverly, crossing NY 17C on their way to Ithaca. They are performing the heavy duty hauling for which they were acquired, taking 95 cars to the NYSEG Milliken plant just up Cayuga Lake from Ithaca.

ELOI surprise
Title:  ELOI surprise
Description:  ELOI has made a pick up at M-K Hornell, which was rebuilding a fleet of R 32 and R 46 subway cars for NYCTA at the time. Usually BUOI got this task, but it must have been running late, or heavy, and ELOI, which was usually a light train, made the pick up. Too bad we didnt know it was out there-it would have been three trains on the EL Main Line west of Hornell that day, an unheard of occurrence for us.

West in the sun
Title:  West in the sun
Description:  OIBU rolls 93 cars west near MP 250, having just passed the Tioga County transfer station, and a couple of semaphores, one of which can be seen to the right of the train. This was the spot where the LV Auburn Branch ducked under the EL to reach Sayre.

Title:  Backing down
Description:  OIBU has made its set off at QD yard, and is now backing onto his train under the conductors watchful eye. He'll take 50 cars out of town today. Off to the far right, the power for WABH 11 is hiding over on the DLW side.

Pulling
Title:  Pulling
Description:  OIBU has gotten back on his train and is now starting to pull its 50 cars west. We have here a good view of the station area. The concrete pad behind the lead unit is the location of the Erie station. Under the middle of the overpass is the Erie freight house, the red brick building. It will be torn down in 1999. In the right background, we see the station tower on the DLW station, as well as the steel frame of the Marconi tower, which was used to mount an antenna for an early radio application. To the left of the radio tower, we see the smokestack for the station powerhouse, which not only provided heat for the station, but also for the steam lines that heated the set out cars that were dropped or picked up here.

Starting over the bridge
Title:  Starting over the bridge
Description:  The steelwork for the Chenango River bridge actually starts before the tracks are at the river bank, as the structure also vaults over Water St before reaching the water. OIBU is on this part of the bridge as we look up, about to cross the Chenango, and head out the west side.
