A genuine classic, Tim. Is this the original incarnation of NS 2862?

N&W had trackage rights on Conrail and D&H all the way to Attica? Didn't know that....

Where were you standing to get this shot? On top of the depot?

Shhh! I climbed the signal!

It was trackage rights for the D&H, not the N&W. The D&H was leasing locomotives from N&W, which was their corporate parent at the time (Dereco).

D&H acquired trackage rights on the CR Southern Tier Line at CR startup, April 1 1976. This was to provide some competition in the northeast, and allow a "friendly" connection to the west for D&H. NW run through power was common, everything from GP 9's to SD45's. I'm not aware of any NW units leased to the D&H on a formal basis.

Still a cool shot, and I love the signals for the Attica Branch. I think they may still be there.
