2nd Unit on NYSW Train 252 heading into Rundles Curve
Rundles curve was close enough to Black Rock Cut that a telephoto zoom lens would allow photos of both locations by turn the opposite direction. Here a going away shot of the NYS&W intermodal train heading into Rundles curve reveals a 2nd locomotive almost as interesting as C&O 614 on the preceding excursion train. STLH 5614 (SD40-2) follows NS 2536 (SD70) into Rundles Curve. Interestingly the 1st photo shown of RRPictureArchives.net for STLH 5614 shows this same consist on the same day at a bit of straight track at roughly this same location. That photo identified this train for me, and shows the 5614 resplendent in its CP Action Red. It is quite possible the photographer posting the archives photo is one of those visible in the 1st photo I posted of this train.
