Out of curiosity, when was the last time the Waterboro interchange was utilized? Who put it out of service?

Just a guess, but I figure the Waterboro interchange was last utilized regularly around 1990 or so... the year CR stopped using the EL mainline west of Wellsville. Thankfully, NYLE still had the BSOR connection at Gowanda...

BSOR workmen were on hand to help with that move @ the fair. Take it from me, the #28 will not make it there this year. There will be a lot of prep work to get it ready to go and there's no way that's happening in 3 weeks. :-)

^Yes. I was in Eden the other day and she is still parked where she has been for the last 18 years or so.

Those alco's have been sitting in Eden for a LONG time. What ever happened to the crane that used to be tied up with them?

^Yes, that's where it is.

I think all of it is owned by Winter's Rigging.

I'm glad you chose to shoot all your pics from public property and not to go in and tresspass without permission. If that's the way it was always done there would be a lot less trouble out there.

I have found that fan-friendly shortlines like the Buffalo Southern are receptive to those who call in advance of a visit. I strongly recommend it. In fact, I called a day ahead of a trip to BSOR a few weeks ago. The result was a very productive visit, as seen here: http://www.american-rails-forums.com/vi ... =80&t=3585

Nice shots. In one, you mentioned that High-nose Alco C-420 is relatively rare. It is... but there is another working at the LA&L (#420 no less) that is also a high nose. It is my favorite engine on the LA&L because it is so unique and usually is paired up with #425.

They just don't make them like they used to...

Thanks. And, yes, I'm a fan #420, too! :-D

BTW, both high nose C420s are of LIRR heritage.

Also, great pictures & well done. Anyone hear when the Strates Fair Train will be pulling out of Hamburg ? Fair ends tomorrow (Sun.) evening.

I see the flat cars are already lined up on the mainline.

Anyone know if the BSOR truck loading Ethanol facility , off Camp Rd, Hamburg, is in operation yet? It looks pretty good , from the view from Jacobi's Restaurant.

Just one test car so far.
