I looked for a Christmas photo to post, but decided on this forlorn siding somewhere in the forgotton ends of East Buffalo Yard. The old Erie boxcars must have been sitting here quite a while. A 20-foot tree sprouted up behind them. Their identifying numbers are long gone. One is missing its doors. Since the opening of Bison Yard in 1963, that is where most of the action is. Old East Buffalo Yard is religated to a lot of storage for old veterans. This would be their last Christmas, as the next Spring CR would send them to the scrapper.

The object of my photo was the MOW gon. Her sides were cut down and she is ID'd as the transport for truck crane 7004. She appears to have many years of like left in her. She awaits the coming of Spring and another MOW season. I probably shot this over the Christmas holidays as the yard was deserted at that time and I felt more comfortable about entering.
