I know Dyes is up near Belden Tunnel on the D&H. And there was/is a siding at Dyes. There exactly is this cut? I can't seem to see a similar land-form on Google Maps. Thanks.

Per the item description, it sounds like the cut is where I-88 now crosses the tracks.

Here then: 42.179951, -75.740795

I was always told Dyes was further east that why I was thrown by the I88 comment on the auction.

I looked at my 1970s track chart and the description and location appear accurate. The train is pulling into Dye siding, presumably to meet a Binghamton-bound train.
