      I wonder what the interchange CONRAIL used to get the cars to the D&H.  I think
      the interchange at RJ is the B&M and CONRAIL.  I can only think of Sandbank and
      the Sandbank Connector being a PC/CONRAIL interchange or Kenwood to Selkirk.
       
       
       
      I've got a picture of 20 or 21 in Norwich and was told that
      on it's way to Oak Island the NYSW used it to switch some cars.

      I know when Walt use to send cars or power to LASB was from Fonda(Conrail) to wherever the D&H interchange was,maybe Rotterdam Jct? Then to Binghamton,and then back to Conrail from Binghamton to Lackawaxen(LASB) .Mark

      Joe,

      Couldn't the routing have been Fonda to Utica to Binghamton to the LASB via
      the Southern Tier? And, if so, wouldn't this have been cheaper?

        And with that, while rummaging around the archives, I found a copy of PC RAILROADER July-August 1975. On page 4 there is a photo of FJG 153998 with the following caption, "The Fonda, Johnstown & Gloversville located off the Mohawk Division in Amsterdam, New York acquired 100 40' and 138 50' box cars from Penn Central. photo by the editor - Joe Klapkowski

         
         
        I know the caption is inaccurate. I did not write it.  This was way before the days of the internet and common information. To have a by- line back then at the ripe old age of 15 was, well, pretty cool.
