The other day, I spent a day railfanning Plattsburgh, NY. You can find part 1 here, and part 2 here.

Plattsburgh. 
 
FYI.
 
 
Just after the War, not yet owning a car, we used to travel to Plattsburgh via CP-NJ-D&H
 
Not much changed from this photo, then.
 
D&H had a Roundhouse to the South in which, in later years, 244 power was kept.
 
Thank You.

One thing that changed is that the park area adjacent to the station used to be the yard on the waterfront.
