Deja vu- Finger Lakes Railway HW2 crosses Route 14 again, albeit northbound this time.

Nice job on the photos...........I have always found this line to be very interesting. I would have loved to have seen the PRR run coal on this line up to Sodus Point. I bet it was a show!

Thanx, Charlie. My father (RIP) was a fan of this branch. He, Grandma and my aunt sometimes rode it from Elmira to Penn Yan (and back) during his childhood. He loved the scenery, as well as the train itself.

I had a nice morning with the B&P about 6 weeks ago. A pair of EMD switchers runs light at Buffalo Creek Yard, and the B&P MOW truck passes through the area.

A Geep was also sitting in the yard, which was fired up by another B&P crew while the switchers worked nearby.

B&P #887 leads a local out of Buffalo Creek Yard.  A trailing Geep served as the FRED for the train.

I caught yet another B&P local working on the former South Buffalo RR, perhaps 20 minutes after departing Buffalo Creek Junction. This train was working at a steel mill near Route 5 and included an old A&E Geep.

I saw the original pair of B&P switchers one more time, pulling a string of gondola into Buffalo Creek Yard under rainy late morning skies.

Thanks, Charlie. I'd never seen the former SB in action before, so it was fun to see it being operated by the B&P.  
 
 
P.S. Nice shot, TB!

Thanx again, Paul. I really love the historical context you give to these locations with your shots. Then and now, indeed!

I caught a little bit of Buffalo & Pittsburgh action last month. This is a local which crossed over (l-r) NS, the Buffalo Southern and CSX on the former South Buffalo RR.  
 

 
The B&P local is crossing over the former B&O 4th Sub (which now part of the B&P):  
 

 
The local comes down a short grade on the approach to Buffalo Creek Yard:

Here's a better look at the track gang working on the ROW, as seen in a couple of the previous photos.
