We've started a new year, so let's see those NS photos!  
 
I can admit it: knowing NS #1069 was criss-crossing upstate NY this month was torturing me. Finally, the VGN unit was assigned to Gang Mills last week. After getting information from trusted sources that she'd be there for the weekend, I made my move.  
 
The VGN unit was shoving a string of covered gondolas when I arrived in Gang Mills:

A rarely used location in Gang Mills is the shoulder of State Route 417, which allowed me to grab additonal side shots on NS #1069:

I also caught a couple other trains while in the area, including NS 28N heading east at MP 315 on the Southern Tier Mainline in Rathbone:

Brand new CNR GMD1's leading westbound Train 585 over the Colquitz trestle. They hadn't yet received their spark arrestors which were much needed on Vancouver Island.

 7   Fallen Flags / PRR / Wreck of PRR Passenger Train #208    Posted Jan 18th, 2017, 6:30am

2/7/1956 at Kokomo Indiana  PRR 5778(DR6-4-2000)
PRR Baldwin Sharknose 5778 lies on its side in Kokomo, Indiana. This was PRR passenger train #208, which ran from Chicago to Cincinnati. The train had made it's regularly scheduled station stop in Kokomo, and was accelerating southbound when the lead engine was diverted by a mis-thrown switch onto an industrial siding, the curvature of which caused the lead unit to tip over from inertia. Fortunately the train wasn't rolling at high speed yet, and the engineer and firemen both survived. None of the trailing cars tipped over, and there were no injuries among the passengers or train crew. Subsequent investigation determined that the switch had been thrown by a young boy (approx age 10-12) who had somehow obtained a switch key, unlocked the siding switch, and thrown it ahead of the train.
