East Trip - June 24, 2010

Six ALCO locomotives smoking

Thursday June 24th I left Pennsylvania. In the morning I went to Moscow, PA again and shot the Pocono Express, an NRHS special powered by three RS3's. I also met Alex Mayes, his wife Teresa and CSX engineer Dale Diacont. After that, rather than chase it (which I should have) I shifted gears and prepared for my trip to New York. I was leaving the post office in Moscow when I saw another Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad grain train go by. I chased it to Tobyhanna where I was rewarded by an hour or so of watching and photographing the same six unit Alco set as before switching out cars. It was a definitely non-Tier II compliant event!

After that I went back to Scranton to shoot the deadline and other Alcos at the D-L shops. Then I headed to Rochester, the only other train I photographed was a Norfolk Southern train at Bevier St Yard in Binghamton, New York.
