Depots and Stations

While a CR freight rolls through on the high line in the background, Amtrak GG1 910 enters 30th Street Station in April, 1977 during the Septa strike.
DHT9 passing the, now extinct, station in Canisteo, NY.
GP40 3212 leads TV301 past the depot at Haverstraw, NY. on July 23, 1988.
TV301 passing the station at West Point, USMA, NY. on Aug. 20, 1988.
5935 lays over in front of the ex Erie Avon station on a quiet spring afternoon.
A northbound coal train awaits a new crew at Woodard. Don't know the origin or destination of this train.
The "class unit" SD40 heads up an eastbound through the station in Springfield, MA. on June 3, 1980. The Amtrak RDC at left is laying over for a short time before heading south on the Springfield line to New Haven.
WNWS-7, the "stone turn", heads south past the station in Berlin, CT. on July 10, 1987. This is a case of ConRail being the tenant and Amtrak, the landlord. Located on Amtrak's ex New Haven RR Springfield line, Berlin is the only station actually owned by Amtrak on that route and was the photographer's "railfanning nursery" back in the 1950's.
Conrail SD40-2 6489 is seen leading a westbound unit grain train past the old station at Duncannon, PA in 1982.
The SD40-2R leading ML 486 rests under the Chenango St bridge as it waits for the new crew to come on for the remainder of the trip to Jersey. In the background is the former DL&W station, now privately owned and occupied by offices. Today's train also has CR 6728 and 3342 for power, rolling 35 stack platforms and 26 auto racks to Doremus Av.
The afternoon train to Valpo is departing Chicago Union Station. This train ran with a variety of equipment from E8's to Amtrak F40's. This day's version has a CR GP-9/GP-7 pulling some old PRR/PC passenger cars. From this vantage point one could still photograph BN, GM&O, N&W, CR, and Amtrak passenger trains in 1978.
Conrail SW9 9125 is seen passing class N5B cabin car 22936 at the old Mount Union, PA freight station in 1979.
Conrail NW-2 #9242, the ex Lehigh Valley 180, works the former EL yard in Scranton,Pa. Off in the distance the former CNJ station can be seen.

Former PRR Ft. Wayne, IN Baker Street Station which was in use as an Amtrak station at the time of the photo(June 1988). This station was used as Conrail's Ft. Wayne division headquarters until it was abolished in 1981.

"Ahhh, The Grandeur Of A Railroad Station"

PC/CR/Septa Frankford Junction Station (inbound to Center City) on Amtrak's Northeast Corridor, Philadelphia, Pa. 1978

Former B&A freight station in Palmer, MA. on Jan. 25, 1988. Unfortunately, it has not survived.
NS 3042, 5259, 3024, 5298, 3057 (CR 3351, 8042, 3319, 8106, 3382) 12-27-09 Sunbury, PA
A view of the engine service area and station at Sayre.
The Woodard station on the Montreal Secondary served as a yard office for a local based there. Sometimes road trains on the Montreal Secondary would hold there, such as CNSE on this snowy morning in November 1995-not an unusual situation for Syracuse. The station is looking like it needs a coat of paint. I'm betting it hasn't seen one since NYC days.
