I visited the Albany area on a Sunday recently and had some questions about the short lines in the area. First, the Albany Port Railroad. I drove around through the industrial area and saw lots of freight cars, but only one engine, a CP. The port RR used to have its own engines. Do they still or do CP and CSX do all the work? Second, the SMS line which runs between Delanson and Vorheesville. (VO) The tracks at Vorheesville were heavily overgrown but there is a track which goes north into the Northeastern Industrial Park in Guilderland (also served by CSX)., that looks well used. I don't know anything about SMS, its history, what it carries . RRpicturearchives has some pictures of it. A switcher in a green Reading scheme and a GE in Santa Fe paint appear to be used recently. Are these engines parked anywhere convenient for photography? A green GP38 belonging to SMS was also shown in Fort Edward. While in the area I also visited some remnants of the FJ&G line. In Gloversville there is a boxcar on display on a piece of track. In Broadalbin the former passenger station is being fixed up nicely. An original piece of track also runs by it. The old freight station is also nearby in good condition.
