LV Elephants on the Erie - 1 of 13
Title:  LV Elephants on the Erie - 1 of 13
Description:  No, your eyes are not deceiving you - that's a pair of LV C628s on the lead in this Conrail + a few days shot. Not much else has changed in Silver Springs, though - note the ever present EL switcher.

Title:  LV Elephants on the Erie - 3 of 13
Description:  Recognize anyone? Between the interchange with the B&O and (what appears to be) a fair amount of business in town, it looks like enough to keep the local switch crew employed.

LV Elephants on the Erie - 10 of 13

Description:  In Cameron, splitting the semaphores. The signal on the right should pin the location. For as long as the signals lasted, this was a popular spot for photographers.

Title:  LV Elephants on the Erie - 12 of 13
Description:  Stuck now - the highway is on the other side of the train - but I liked this shot. New fake wood grain station wagon, anyone?

LV Elephants on the Erie - 13 of 13
Title:  LV Elephants on the Erie - 13 of 13
Description:  This is Addison. The track off to the left is (I believe) a leftover of the connection for the old Buffalo & Susquehanna, later the WAG. Note it is protected with a derail and switch circuit controller. The Canisteo River is just through the trees farther to the left - I didn't check to see if the bridge was still there. Hurricane Agnes took out a lot of stuff and the susbsequent flood control projects took out even more. Just a single track through here today.
