Visitor Comments about this Photo:
I searched the North American archive here for any photo with key word "Mechanicville" and found a lot of Bruce Nelson's excellent pix and based on looking at some of them I agree this photo's vantage point is at the east end of B&M's yard looking west at a departing eastbound train. Below is a link to one of Bruce's photos looking eastward at more or less the same spot and the track/switches and pole lines look very similar to your photos of the departing train:

I think VO tower would be behind you with eh D&H diamond across the B&M mainline.
