Some of the locks on the NY State Barge Canal were good places to see the action on the Water Level Route. One of the best is Lock 10 at Cranesville. Here we see an eastbound with a two units leading 118 cars on the opposite shore. Up til the start of Conrail, it was possible to run a train from Albany to Utica on either side of the Mohawk River. By this time, there were only a few short segments of the old West Shore remaining between those two places.
