Interchange Point

Front: Berk 744 is putting on quite a show for the photographer as the S-2 strides into Blasdel, N.Y, with a westbound freight on a fine day in March 1957. The location is GB Cab-in--long a favored location of Buffalo-area railroad photographers--where the Plate and Pennsy crossed the Erie.

Back: Dressed in light blue, NKP 759 storms eastbound out of Bellevue, Ohio, in May 1969 with the Golden Spike Centennial Limited. In pursuit is an Island Air Lines Ford Tri-Motor chartered by photographer Mike Eagleson.
