I grew up in Troy and remember that around 10 AM a 0-6-0 NYC switcher
would pass through the Station and head for Cohoes using the method defined previously. I don't remember how /when it returned. I assume it was based in South Troy.I could not find it in the Employees Timetable hat I have #64 for 9/28/1947
There was also a late afternoon freight that use the same path, but went Schenectady The number was 803, and arrived in Schenectady around 7:15 PM
It rerurned as #802 leaving at 10 AM the next day and arriving at 1:45 PM. The train was led by 2-8-2. I used to know the number, but was years ago.
Ah, for the good old days.
