Re: Seneca Army Depot-Anything RR left to view?

Very similar to our experience during the tour in 2006. Small yellow school bus, very crowded with the typical small windows. Appears via satellite view that the Q Area may have had a rail spur. This ties in with some papers in my files that show a 10 ATMX car special train shipment with G-23 and G-...

Re: Seneca Army Depot-Anything RR left to view?

Google satellite view sure makes it appear that the Q Area has been demolished with a lot of bare earth showing.

Re: Seneca Army Depot-Anything RR left to view?

The Andersons railcar repair facility at the former Seneca Army Depot has indeed closed down. Was fortunate to visit and photograph the facility in the fall of 2016, said visit being arranged by a friend who resides in Binghamton, NY. Was able to catch the FGLK job enroute to the depot on the former...

Keystone Generating Plant Shelocta, PA

This facility at one time utilized a EMD GP40 No. 48001.

Is this locomotive still in use at this coal fired electric power station?

Re: Towanda & Monroeton S.L. SW-1 status

The flood of 2010 washed the track out between Towanda and Monroeton. Related to me was the fact that Shaffer's Feeds owns the last four miles of track to Monroeton and did not want to have the expense of track repairs. The stranded hopper car is utilized for storage.

Re: Towanda & Monroeton S.L. SW-1 status

R&N did base a switch loco at Towanda, RBMN SW8 No. 802.

This locomotive was removed from Towanda after business on the line to Monroeton was reduced to a single customer, Grow Mark in North Towanda. Thereafter the Lehigh Rwy now performs switching in Towanda for the R&N under contract.

Re: LV crosses the NYS Thruway?

The Lehigh Valley Railroad Rochester Branch passed under the NYS Thruway via a tunnel-like concrete underpass. Probably still there.

Re: Geneva Jct on the LV

BR&P is correct in that the Geneva Jct. tower basement was roofed over and converted to contain the circuitry for the power switch machines and related signals at the junction after the discontinuation of the interlocking tower. Originally the track diagram and interlocking controls for Geneva Jct. ...

There was a telephone at the east end of the station. I believe m/o/w used a portion of the station as an office.

Re: LV Building at Rochester Junction help

That shack contained a telephone and desk. The structure was put up by B&B shortly after the Rochester Jct. station was destroyed by fire on Easter Sunday, 1973.
