137 Miles From Albany? Batten Kill Alco RS-3 #4116 leads its train north into Cambridge, NY on its return trip from interchanging with Pan Am Southern at Eagle Bridge. The milepost at right represents mileage from Albany, NY, which may be confusing since Cambridge is--at most--40 miles from Albany. However, this is the former D&H Washington Branch, and the mileage from here was measured northbound to Castleton, Vermont, westbound to Whitehall, NY, then southbound to Albany. The Washington Branch north of Salem, NY has been gone since the early 1980s, however.
