On the NYS forum, I posted a few pics regarding Caledonia in the PC days. I dug out a few more from DeWitt and scanned them this past weekend. Here's the first:

While NYC + PRR + NH = PC was still a mess, someone forgot that the NYC was still trying to absorb the B&A...

Here are two that wandered off the rails. The first is the tender off B&A Berkshire 1418 (NYC X26056):

Both were shoved off on a spur track on the north side (north of the service road) at the west end of the yard. I believe it to be the same area as where the material yard is today.
