Old Albany Main under Route 9W bridge (1983)

Here is a shot of a D&H train pulled by RS36 #5016 passing under the Route 9W bridge on the old Albany Main line. As I noted here, the line was torn up in 2000 after one of the railroad bridges near where this shot was taken was condemned. The cost of the repair wasn't deemed worthwhile and thus the line was severed. It is a nice walking trail, and I hope someday to bike along it. Until then, I will only have shots like this from October 24, 1983.

  1. The Albany Main is a part of the D&H that fascinates me. We walked on the north end of the trail from downtown Albany last year. How many trains used the line in the D&H era? And how many during CP until 2000?
