After finishing his work in G-Vegas, NS 28N heads long hood forward back to his train in great evening light
Making the reverse move at Gardner, the conductor or 28N rides the trailing SD70 back to hook up to there train after making a drop off to the P&W
After doing some work in Gardner, 28N runs light back to the rest of his train with the conductor riding on the rear of NS 2521 a former Conrail SD70.
Not something you see every day here on the P&W, GMTX SD60's leading GRWO, long hood forward! Here they are coming into the yard, through an impressive bridge structure.
As we were waiting for 28N, Pan Am local ED8 showed up with two GP40-2Ws leading a cut of tank cars. Pan Am 503 (the lead GP40) smokes up a storm as he enters Deerfield Yard.
The chase continues as 28N cruses through Otter River, MA at a steady 25MPH.
Now in Otter River with the sun light perfect, the 1066 NYC Heritage coast by at 25MPH which his next spot in Gardner, MA to make a drop off.
The chase is on! NS 1066 leads 28N through Deerfield Yard for the first time.
After chasing this train east for close to 100 miles it was nice to finally get an extended look at him, even though it was under the cloak of darkness. Well, not for the camera at least
I shot this at the joint New Haven and Boston & Maine engine facility. Notice that the New Haven S-2 (Alco 1944) has a flat roof which the New Haven ordered for low clearances.
Wind chill be darned, switching goes on.
