Late in the day on July 18, the famous Alco S1 Shop switcher, #5, was fired up for a trip over the entire former Saratoga & North Creek Railroad property. The move was made to 'rescue' the privately-owned ex-D&H Alco RS-36 5019 and a passenger car at North Creek, NY. The rescue operation is seen at Thurman, NY, where the #5 was run around to the rear of the consist and provided the power to shove the two pieces of equipment to the CP interchange near Saratoga Springs, NY. The equipment will be moved to a new home for safe keeping shortly.
A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom seen beauty of railroads from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding sunset to sunrise surprises!)
