Dodger in the pink
Title:  Dodger in the pink
Description:  I heard the radio say the dodger was going to Gentry to change ends, so I waited, figuring I could at least see it, if not get a photo. There was still enough light in the sky to work a silhouette. To my great delight, the sky had picked up a swath of pink from the now departed sun hitting a cloud, giving this unusual scene. Three units have 11 cars in tow.

Going away
Title:  Going away
Description:  The oil train is rolling south away from my perch on the Ark 12 overpass, the exhaust from the DPUs making the string of tanks shimmer in the late afternoon sun.

Oil train DPUs
Title:  Oil train DPUs
Description:  I caught a 110 car oil train at Decatur with these CP units working as the DPU, capping off a NAFTA consist. How so?? The leader was a KCSM gray GE, followed by a couple of the US assigned units, though one of those was former TFM. Everybody can play!!

Title:  Making a show of it
Description:  NYSW 142 was the power on the south end of the Maple Festival train, and it made a good show of getting out of town on a very cold Saturday morning.

Watching the show
Title:  Watching the show
Description:  The Owego & Harford was hard for me to catch, as it seemed to be a morning show several days a week, the schedule driven by gas cars and excursion trains. Thus, there was no one working when the CP delivered their cars. RS 18 1801 looks on as the gas cars are set off near the Owego station.

Coal train running
Title:  Coal train running
Description:  Almost. Look at the tanks behind the power. Hes actually slowing to cut the hoppers off and take the tanks to the Owego & Harford, an unusual move for a through train.

SU 2 power
Title:  SU 2 power

Always a good power set
Title:  Always a good power set
Description:  The days of the NYSW directed service operation of the D&H had come to a close, but there was still a lot of mixing between their power fleets. Such is the case with this BH 2 working QD yard, a lightning stripe GP 38 and a B 40. You never knew what would turn up.

Extracurriculars
Title:  Extracurriculars
Description:  This is not the Mills Job, which usually handles the task of interchanging gas cars with the Owego & Harford. Today the honor goes to the 891 train, and empty coal train going to Buffalo and onto the NS. This is not its usual assignment. It was interesting to watch a set of six axle power take the O&H connecting track and yard. Im sure the crew was holding their breath the entire time.

Old classics
Title:  Old classics
Description:  At the time, the SD 50 was not one of them, the leader of an OIBU posed in front of the real classics. Beyond the engine, we see the tower of the DLW station, now privately owned and in good shape. To the left of the station is one of the Marconi transmission towers, dating to 1913 when wireless radio was still experimental. The SD 50 was common then. Now, in 2018, there are not many still running in America.

Description:  Despite the appearance, the RDC on the end of the train will not be acting as a cab car on todays Maple Festival train. The honor of leading will fall to 2-8-2 142, which will couple on shortly.

Description:  NYSW 142 is ready to go on its move from Cortland to the Maple Festival in Marathon. The steamer next to the DLW station and crossing guard tower evokes the feel of a much earlier era.

Steaming south
Title:  Steaming south
Description:  Looking for all the world like an early 1950s secondary train, the Maple Festival train pulls out of Cortland, the engine sending a large plume of smoke skyward.

Looking down
Title:  Looking down
Description:  Several places along I 81 provide good views of the tracks, though I dont recommend sitting on the side of the interstate to do this. Its a violation of the Vehicle and Traffic Law for one thing, and not terribly safe for another. Nevertheless, a shot of a steam train was too much to resist, so we have this shot of the Maple Festival train near Messengerville, seen from the shoulder of I 81.

Along the Tioghnioga
Title:  Along the Tioghnioga
Description:  The NYSW is running on the former DLW Syracuse Branch, which for a good part of its length south of Cortland follows the Tioghnioga River. We see the train a couple of miles out of its arrival at the festival in Marathon.

Waiting on time
Title:  Waiting on time
Description:  The NYSW ran excursions for the annual Marathon Maple Festival, starting with a run down from Cortland. Mikado 142 was the star of the train for several years. In 1993, it was brutally cold and snowy-there had been a 20 plus inch snowfall a week earlier-even for the festival, which was notorious for its awful weather. While it made for a challenging chase, steam in the snow made for a great show.
