Here's a CSX local switching in the Kellogg's Yard. The Branch is serviced by a local from South Schenectady 3 days a week

Up the hill she goes

Here's cars being pushed across Vrooman Ave. The end of the branch is just to the right. The cars need to be pushed this far so they can hit the switch to go up to FGI

Here they are coming up the hill to the Edison Industrial Park.

Here's the engine at the Vrooman Ave. crossing. It has just come down from Edison Ave. and the crew is hitting the switch for the trip back down the hill.

Here's a former Conrail caboose that was used for pushing up the branch. The crew would ride caboose-first up the hill to the industrial Park.
