Number 3107 is a good example of the GP40s that handle road service on the R&S:

A strong thunderstorm passed just north of my location, darkening the sky for a time:

Found this on youtube, has some great RSR action and local CSX stuff!

I've seen RSR many times, but only was able to capture the overkilled classic of 3107 assembling GW-1 in the yard.

Nice shots Matt. That was a neat video GV. Not just images, but details too. Thanks to both for sharing!

I headed out to Buffalo for a mid-summer chase this year... and arrived at Tifft Street just in time to catch this pair of B&P switchers pulling a train into Buffalo Creek Junction.

In reality, the train was using the B&O to get to a switchback so it could back onto the former South Buffalo RR. Here we see the B&P local pulling out of Buffalo Creek Junction on SB rails. The former B&O yard is in the background to the left.

Heading out on the former South Buffalo RR, which was acquired by the B&P a few years back:

Buffalo Creek Junction/Tifft Street is a very busy area. I was treated to a number of meets while I was there, including the NS autoracks that passed through in the foreground, while the B&P local was departing.

The B&P local is on the former SB, passing over the former B&O.

How about a three way meet? Here we see the B&P passing over a CSX intermodal and a CSX local. That's Buffalo Creek Junction, which is still a busy spot... even with the decline the area's manufacturing base. The B&P, Buffalo Southern, CSX and NS are all active there. The B&P does a decent amount of business, since they handle traffic for a steel mill nearby and a Ford truck plant in Hamburg.
