Damn the NIMBY's, Full Speed Ahead!
Author: ut-1

(With apologies to Admiral David Farragut....)

Despite some local opposition, Mohawk, Adirondack & Northern continues to store empty propane tank cars on the northernmost 10 miles of its 45-mile Utica-Boonville-Port Leyden, NY branch line.

Led by No. 2042, a MLW M420W still in ex-owner BCOL's paint scheme, 38 tankers were taken north of Boonville for storage on April 19th.

Here are a few photos showing the move:

1. Passing over one-lane tunnel on Old Poland Road, Barneveld.

2. Remsen.

3. Passing by a waterfall, Remsen.

The Buffalo and Pittsburgh made the local news here in the Buffalo area this week. Storing a cut of empty oil cars on their line through Lackawanna NY. I happened to notice them a few weeks ago and knew it was just a matter of time before the neighbors complained. I grew up in this neighborhood and it was my first experience of watching trains on the B&O in the 60's and 70's.
