    Lovely photo. I keep forgetting that J's were equally at home hauling freight. Thanks.

    Wow -- that's beautifully composed, with signals, BE Tower, perfect light and sharp as a tack. I think that we sometimes forget that photography was far more challenging back then, making a fine photograph like this quite an achievement.

    BE Tower. I have train orders copied there and have wondered about it's appearance. It looks very solid! Long gone, I would imagine.

    And, with a velocipede in the foreground, no less.

    Surprisingly, I think it still stands, though out of service of course. I shot this image at Berea on 09/24/1997. In addition to BE Tower, the same signal mast and relay bungalow appearing in Roger's picture appear in mine, though the signals were fewer in number in 1997.

    Beautiful shot of a beautiful Hudson, Roger. Hard to believe that was 70 years ago.
