The B&P local switches while a westbound CSX intermodal flies past it.

One final shot from Buffalo Creek Junction- it must've been for the B&P crew, even with the cab door(s) open.

I had a fun day in Buffalo near the end of summer. It began with the B&P local switching the yard at Buffalo Creek Junction.

I've noticed that GWI has a fairly common practice of pairing an older Geep with an SW1500 (or MP15) switcher.

I'm not sure where it was headed... but the B&P had a string of coal-filled hoppers at Buffalo Creek Junction.

SIBF goes on duty at Salamanca at 0400 now, so it arrives in Buffalo during daylight. (It had been a night operation until recently.)

SIBF had a nice mix of older EMD engines, including a leased locomotive as the leading unit.

The B&P literally crosses over itself at Buffalo Creek Junction. SIBF is the former South Buffalo bridge over the ex-B&O 4th Subdivision.

After SIBF passed, the B&P local resumed working at Buffalo Creek Junction while Norfolk Southern's local H0A switched cars in another part of the yard.

My good luck with GWI continued in October... when I literally ran into an R&S local job while returning home from a rainy and failed attempt at chasing NS. I thought for sure that I'd lose the R&S train as it headed down the former B&O... but a shrill horn alerted me to the local starting switching duties in town.

I've even eaten at the D&R Depot, which is to the left of the R&S local. The building itself dates back to the BR&P era and the current owner has had a nice dining establishment there since the early '90s. The food is yummy!

This NS boxcar would never make it all the way across the street.

The R&S shuffles cars on a spur that branches off the former B&O/BR&P.
