Remarks & Notes 
Saratoga to Kenwood Yard (Port of Albany) turn job crosses the frozen Erie Canal at Lock E-3 (behind the bridge) with 44 cars. Trailing units are SOO SD60m 6058 and ICE 6215. Two historic canal boats are docked in the foreground. The 259' Day Peckinpaugh, a canal motorship, is the far boat. Built in 1921, narrow and low to clear bridges and canal locks, it was the last working freighter on the Erie Canal and was retired in 1994. It served both the Erie Canal and Great Lakes. Tug boat Chancellor, built in 1938 is the closer boat. The DME 6086 is the former Quebec North Shore and Labrador Railway (QNSL) 207 and CP 5403, built as an SD40.
