This photo shows the Ex-Erie/NS gorge crossing looking south. Notice the Ex-PRR/Canal ROW on the east side of the Genesee River where it goes underneath the trestle which is highlighted by the snow.

The WNY&P RR row can be seen in the upper right corner opposite the large parking lot. The PS&N row can be seen on the left side of the photo at base of ski resort above the parking lot in the shadows.

Subject: Ex-EL/Erie Southern Tier Line
This photo is looking SE. The PS&N is seen coming from the SE in the middle of the photo going thru the "farm complex" just before entering the curve and then going back along the base of the hill on the right. The Southern Tier line is going in between.

This is a close up photo while flying over head of the Horse Shoe Curve. The concrete abutments can be seen at the Ex-Erie/NS line at bottom center. You can see where the row goes through a "farm complex". This is also the approximate location of the former rr station.

BIDCO is evident with several barges docked along the Buffalo River with ADM across the street. General Mills is to the right but out of the picture. Lafarge is to the extreme left and half of the structure is in the picture.

Subject: Pennsylvania RR freight house on Ohio St. This is the south side of the building. It's also the RR loading side with a visible loading platform. The bumper and rails are still in place. The rails disappear into the weeds and therefore not sure how far they actually go. I walked the rails for several yards trying to find a time stamp on them. The rails are too far gone to be able to read them.

Subject: Pennsylvania RR freight house on Ohio St. This photo shows the truck side of the Pennsylvania RR building. There is no loading platform other than the building itself. There are three loading bays. There are no rails on this side of the building. The Pennsylvania RR logo has been stripped from the front of the building. This building is also in very dangerous condition. The structure is falling apart and mostly from above.

Subject: Pennsylvania RR freight house on Ohio St. This is a close up of the rail side of the building. The bumper is the immediate left. You can see the crumbling of the overhang. I don't think this building could handle more than one boxcar. Maybe it could handle two boxcars with a first generation boxcar.

Looking down on the CSX Frontier Yard and NS Bison Yard. Although clouds obscure the yards a little you can see the West Shore row at Harlem Rd and Walden Ave. You also get a good view of the track layout of Frontier. You can also make out the ex-DLW row leaving the yard and the reservoir next to it.

This photo provides a better overall view of both yards. You can clearly see the ex-DL&W row coming out of the Bison Yard next to the reservoir and crossing over CSX at Frontier. You can see the former Palace Car Co roundhouse. The patch of grass next to it is where the West Shore roundhouse was located. This is according to the map on page 139 from the book, "A History of Railroads of Western New York."

csx-ns3: This photo further down the CSX mainline is the Central Terminal at the entrance/exit to the Belt Line. The large building opposite the terminal is the U.S. Post Office. The former CPRail Yard [SK Yard] is viewable at the top of the photo. There appears to be a Conrail unit parked near the SK Yard office but I couldn't verify it.

This photo has a lot to look at. Primarily Ganson St with ADM, General Mills and LaFarge. There were no ships docked here at the time I flew over them. At the bottom and just left of center you can see 3 silos remaining of the HO OATS elevators being torn down for the casino. You can clearly see the area where sand is delivered and transferred across from ADM.

Subject: This photo is where CSX crosses thru the intersection of Twin Cities Hwy, Erie St, Wheatfield St, Division St and Nash Rd in North Tonawanda. I caught it just before it crossed. It was slow moving all the way to the intersection and then stopped and waited for auto traffic to stop. Then it proceeded.
