We were able to get together at Chris' last night for the first in-person NHRHTA Photo Library in over a year. So it seemed like an appropriate time to share a photo or two.
Most likely another Kent Cochrane shot, this time at Berlin c1947.
DER-1 (DL-109) of an unknown road number since this particular scheme didn't have it on the nose. It's on the westbound (southbound) Springfield mainline.
Also of interest is the NYC covered hopper S81352, and just behind that you can see the turnout that firms the west end of the house track and a runaround. What's not clear in this picture is that the track the car is sitting on also curves toward New Britain, which is the actual west leg of the wye.
You can see the tracks in the valuation map below:
The track to the north is the Berlin Line, heading to New Britain. Toward the northeast is Hartford, and southwest is New Haven.
This is the line that is still in use today, and is always an important part of operations on my layout. the NY/YN trains come up the Berlin Line from Cedar Hill, and in later years so does the New Hartford Local.
This photo I've shared before of YN-3 being hauled by I-4 1367. Yes, an I-4 on a local freight...
