After leaving Victor, we made a stop on Fishers Road by the Auburn Road trail
to take a peek at the NYC pump house, a very neat structure.

We found lots of goodies, such as these rollers and rods left over from
the tower/interlocking.

A view of the coal stove

That stove is the real deal! I well remember the legend cast into the top surface. "If I am good, please tell others about me."
I always thought that would make a great message on a tee shirt....

As we crossed over one of the bridges on the wye, Keith spotted
something in the creek that was of interest.

Here's Scot Lawrence (scottychaos) poking at this object in the creek, were he
got it to move a bit.

And there it is! Keith's holding up a late 19th Century "link" for a link and pin coupler that had failed on one end, which is likely a good reason why it had ended up in the creek for at least 100 years!
 
Definitely the find of the day!

Here's a better look at the coupler link, you can see where it broke
on the end. This item was given to the Mendon Foundation, who is
in the process of building a visitor's center at the Junction and it's
volunteers were working on this day.

After leaving the Junction, we drove over to the Rochester and Genesee
Valley Railroad Museum to see the Hammerhead 211 and other goodies
there. Here is Matt Langworthy on long hood.

Thank you very much for posting the photos which will serve as a historic log for the day.
 
You guys did very well, and to find the link was especially great. The fact that you donated it to the Foundation was greater yet.
 
Anyone know where that pot signal in Victor came from?
 
After all the years I tromped around RJ I never once stumbled across the roller and pipe. Another good find.
 
Some foundations and rollers remain at P&L Jct., but one has to virtually crawl on hands and knees to locate them for the brush and weeds.

Paul,
 
That pot signal in the first pic belongs to Bernie as part of a display and  
from what I understood is portable. He also has one of the metal whistle
posts that is also portable, see photo below.
 
Bernie was also doing a presentation later in the day for a group of children
from "friends of the railroad". He really has a nice collection!
 
Charlie
