Latta Rd. & the NYC interchange - 4 of 7 - summer 1974
Title:  Latta Rd. & the NYC interchange - 4 of 7 - summer 1974
Description:  OK, how many hoses do you count? Other than the brakepipe (trainline), the "usual" three are main reservoir equalizing, application & release, and sanders. What else is going on?

Latta Rd. & the NYC interchange - 1 of 7 - summer 1974
Title:  Latta Rd. & the NYC interchange - 1 of 7 - summer 1974
Description:  Brakeman Jack Kyle on the pilot. This view is to the north just a stone's throw from Latta Rd. The train is on the Lake Ontario State Parkway overpass and has just dropped off a car at the NYC (PC) interchange. I can't tell what it is, but it looks like a couple of storage tanks tied down on a flat car. Probably farm equipment. Neither the tracks nor the bridge exist today. The bridge was removed as part of the O'Rorke bridge project.

Title:  Latta Rd. & the NYC interchange - 7 of 7 - summer 1974
Description:  Heading home. Dock Jct. is off in the distance. The BR&P concrete phone booth is visible. The docks have been closed for a couple of years, so all the sidings are empty and unused. Bennington Dr. is on the left on the other side of the houses. The NYC is out of sight on the right.
