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.

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.

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.
