Saratoga & NorthCreek ALCOs

Postby RussNelson » Mon Jan 19, 2015 8:28 pm

Saw these two butt-to-butt in North Creek, NY on the turntable. Grabbed two photos from slightly different angles, and used one of them to remove the telephone pole occluding part of the #5 ALCO. This line is historically the Delaware and Hudson, is now county-owned and is operated by the Saratoga and North Creek Railroad.

Not then, but when I was there in May, the turntable was empty.

Both ALCO'S may be for sale according to some reliable sources. The railroad may want to go 100% EMD soon.
