In early 2006, the Providence & Worcester Railroad, already an
innovator in the Northeast, was contracted to move
imported coal from the Port of Providence, Rhode Island to a power plant just
west of Binghamton, New York.
The route the coal trains would take involved 4 railroads by
the time they reached Binghamton.
The exciting news for area Railfan's is that the trains would keep the P&W power
for the trip!
This program documents 5 of the 7 trains as they operated on
CP Rails ex Delaware & Hudson line
from Delanson to just north of Binghamton. We also show other trains that
ran on these days!
