Sharks at Cowley

Forty five miles north of Williamsport, PA lies the tiny hamlet of Cowley, PA. Northbound trains fight a steady grade from just above Williamsport to Granville Summit less than a mile away from Cowley. The three Baldwin shark nosed diesels shown here will soon be notching back as they descend the grade to Troy, PA. Long gone are Pennsy decapods that handled this chore for decades as this 1960s era scene depicts.

Train Orders at Watkins

Watkins Glen, NY is at the southern tip of Seneca Lake in New York's Finger Lakes Region on the Pennsy's Elmira Branch.  In this scene, an I-1sa decapod with an empty coal train slows to take train orders from the operator at Watkins Glen. An overnight storm deposited a couple of fresh inches of snow on the landscape as the skies clear and the clouds break apart in this early morning scene.

EC-92 at Tin Bridge

One of the last hold outs for steam powered trains was the Pennsylvania Railroad's Elmira Branch. Local train EC-92 ran southbound from Southport (Elmira) Yard to Williamsport, PA. In this mid-1950s scene, L-1 Mikado No. 2369 was a regular engine on this run. Because EC-92 switched several industries in route they usually placed a cabin car behind the engine for the head end brakeman.
