Genesee & Wyoming Switching Retsof Salt Mine Yard
GNWR 35 (S4) and GNWR 30 (RS1) work together switching the salt mine yard at Retsof, NY on the original Genesee & Wyoming. The orange, black & yellow that are so common today were already in place on the western NY short line in this view from that I'm guessing was taken sometime between 1966 and 1968; I'll use 1967 simply as the middle of that range, while the mine at Retsof that was the railroad's primary customer was still very active.
