LV yard train symbols 1966

Postby BR&P » Sun Mar 03, 2013 5:35 pm

Sorting old paperwork and found some LV switch lists from October 1966. Trains are CC-1 and CS-2, conductors were Wm. P. Morse and George McFall, power was various RS3's including several mentions of the 211 which is at the museum near Rochester.

The "S" likely refers to Sayre, confirmed by the fact some of the cars on CS2 show Sayre as destination. But what are the "C"'s? - no location is shown. FWIW these were yard jobs or traveling switchers, not through trains.

The "C" would probably indicate Cortland.

The last few years the LVRR was in business SC-1 and CS-2 were the Sayre-Cortland and Cortland-Sayre local.

CS-2....Excellent, that makes sense. Would the other one - CC-1- perhaps be a yard job which stayed around Cortland? Most of these forms are typed and it's definitely CC-1, not SC-1

Could CC-1 be the Cortland - Canastota job ?

That would make sense for 1966, yes.
