Conrail's Montreal Secondary

CNSE sits at Woodard in the early morning waiting for a crew. Once the new crew is on, it will head south for CP 291, then on to Selkirk. CN 6002, a rebuilt SD 40, was a common sight on this train at that time.

CR stands on the Fulton Secondary at Woodard, tied up for the day. Tomorrow it will return to working local industry on the line. I was attending driving school for JB Hunt, which, in the Syracuse area, was at National Tractor Trailer School, which was adjacent to Woodard on the Montreal Secondary.
