Alco dead line at Binghamton (1987)

Here is a sad shot. The "deadline" at Binghamton Yard taken exactly thirty-five years ago today on July 07, 1987. 

From front to back, it shows engines #5018, #5017, #5023, #506, #5005, #5016, #5004, #5003, #5002, #5001. Alcos from the RS11, RS36, and RS3m locomotive classes are represented. By this time, Guilford was running almost entirely EMD and GE engines and these were surplus (and likely worn out anyway). 

Thankfully, not all of them were scrapped.
