NYSW NTV-9, Conrail TV203 From the Cheap Seats
Author: globalethanol

Made a trip at the end of October,1990 to Lanesboro, Pa. to shoot the morning westbound Doublestack trains on Starrucca Viaduct. I parked at Jeff Jct. and started hiking before daylight and made it to my seat just after daylight. After about a 45 minute wait the sound of K5 horns from Gulf Summit broke the silence. NYSW NTV-9 showed up first with a B40-8-B40-8-SD45-B40-8 lashup of yellow-jackets and mixed doublestack train with haulage freight on the rear. Following close behind was Conrail`s TV-203C with an SD50-C39-8-SD40-2 lashup sounding great coming over the arches in dynamics. The trip back down to the truck was much better than the trip up!

Spec-friggin-tacular! Wow, really brings the economic might represented by the traffic behind those units into perspective. Humbling and highly scenic, what a great view of a gorgeous bridge.
Thanks for the great effort capturing this and of course for posting it as well.

We'll never know because 28 years later I doubt that we would even make it halfway up that hill !
