hey, i just joined, anyhow, i model current NS operations in upstate NY in HO scale. For those of you familiar not familiar with the area, we're about an hour south of syracuse. Binghamton still has 2 yards, and is full of Railroading history. The headquarters of the Lehigh Valley is 45 minutes to the west, in Sayre, PA. And in Endicott, tne last semaphore in Ney York stands guard at MP 224.2.Binghamton was also the crossrads of the DL&W and Erie. The D&H came down from the noorth, and used to have a yard in Bonghamthon, which is all but gone.
