Terrific photos! Brings back a lot of fond memories!
Re: the pictures of the manifest departing westward from Manchester Yard, I'm guessing the string of empty 2-bay B&O/C&O hoppers behind the locomotives came from the then Milliken power plant on Cayuga Lake and will be dropped a few miles further west at P&L Junction at Caledonia for interchange with the B&O. Shortly before C-day I recall seeing cuts of these hoppers at Caledonia (a very interesting place with 5 active RRs up until April 1, 1976: EL, PC, B&O, LV, and G&W).
Keep 'em coming!
