New York

Delaware & Hudson
Binghamton, New York
January 28, 1971

This northbound freight is fighting its way up the steep grade north out of Binghamton running along New York Highway 7, soon to pass through Belden Hill Tunnel. Although at this time the D&H was under the control of Dereco, and mixed consists including EL units were not unusual, this one is all classic D&H.

Some of the slides from this time period have more than their share of flecks and spots, but in this case that's all real snow. Brrrr!
