"Back On Home Rails" Ex-EL Alco No. 2453" (video)

Postby ut-1 » Thu Sep 06, 2018 5:58 pm

Mohawk, Adirondack & Northern No. 2453, a C425 Alco and ex-Erie Lackawanna No. 2453, ran down the ex-EL Utica-Binghamton branch today as part of NYS&W's UT-1.

The Alco was heading to Scranton where its main generator will be replaced at Delaware-Lackawanna's shops.

Here's a short video:

Also two photos (the first taken at Lower Main Crossing, Clayville, the second overlooking Durant Farms, Waterville).

While I couldn't say for sure that I'd like a main line railroad going through my back yard [at least not that close]......Having these guys come thru would definitely be welcome.
