In 1964, I finally got a new 35 mm camera with electric eye exposure and quickwiind capability. After a few tryouts, I took it down to the crossing near my home and caught #1 coming & going. The roadcrossing is the 2nd past the east end of the former DL&W's Conklin, N. Y. yard. The engineer will be looking at the home signal for the east end of the yard in a few seconds, but it's very unlikely that the operator at BY tower will give him any less than a high green (clear). It would be unthinkable even at this late date to stick #1. A far cry from the way once famous trains are treated by the freight railroads nowadays.
