After many years of waiting, I finally catch the northbound run tonight. And a picture. My little voice said, "get to The Wall" ( Holiday Valley, Ellicottville). I get there at 8:10pm. 8:15 I see him coming and I grab the pic. The lead locomotive is just to the left of the chair. From my phone it doesn't look bad but when I get home and on the PC.....we'll see. Zooming in would have been terrible at night.

I can't see the train in the picture. I just see a ski-lift.

The lead locomotive is to the left of the chair. You can't actually see the train but you can see the lights on the locomotive.

At this point, the ROW is running North/South and parallel with RT219. The photo location is at the southern end of Holiday Valley Ski Resort. Look for the trail called The Wall and trace it to where you see the route number "219". You'll then see the row and that's where the locomotive was when I snapped the picture.
