Here's a great shot of the Ilion Freight House in the 1960's. Once again we can see the lettering for NYWS&BRco. This view looks down the mainline east towards Mohawk. The Ilion Depot was just across the tracks to the left of here. The Clark & Bakor Factory (Remington Rand / UNIVAC) is right behind the Freight House. (Photo: Rob Stubbs)
