Canal St C line Brooklyn bound
Title:  Canal St C line Brooklyn bound
Description:  The first loco I ever saw in the US. There was track replacement work at this station (which was the nearest to the hotel we was staying in) and when we went down to get a subway on sunday lunch time this loco was in the station with a works train collecting material after the work had been completed.

Creative Biomass Inc
Title:  Creative Biomass Inc
Description:  The site of the former United Co-Operative farmers/Cargill site. The site is now used for the recycling of waste wood into pellets. When I visited the loco's torque convertor had expired and the owner was looking for a new one as he was keen to use the railway for inward and outward transport. Does anyone know the current situation?

Beware the zealous security guard!
Title:  Beware the zealous security guard!
Description:  The security guard on the gate of the port (which I didn't try and get into) tried to stop me from taking this. I did ask him if I was doing anything illegal (which he agreed I wasn't) and I did point out I was on a public road but he really didn't want me to take this photo (and its not that its a great photo). As a show of his "power" his parting shot was to take a photo of my car and number plate - I await the knock on the door.....
