TV 20 passes the home signal at CP Swain as it heads for Hornell with 45 platforms and 33 COFC. This was a new 12,800 foot siding installed when the line was single tracked a couple years prior, allowing stack trains to meet. Conrail tended to run long stack trains, sometimes over two miles. This was quite an undertaking in the days before DPU's, though the crews managed to get over the road, including several good climbs, without incident.
