We went on an Alco hunting expedition for the Canada Day long weekend, starting with the BSOR, NYLE, and WNYP with a stop at Angola for CSX and NS along the way.

Hamburg, New York
Hamburg is just outside of Buffalo to the south-west and is the home to Buffalo Southern's not particularly accessible power line-up.
Angola, New York
(map) In the township of Evans, New York are the towns of Angola and Derby where the CSX Chicago line parallels a somewhat quieter NS track between nearby Buffalo, NY and Chicago, IL. A great spot for shooting both of these is at Sturgeon Point Road, with plenty of warning from talking defect detectors, CTC signals and headlights.
Gowanda, New York
Gowanda is the home of NYLE's excursions and is the interchange point between the BSOR and the NYLE.
Falconer, New York
Falconer is the home of the Western New York and Pennsylvania's shops near Jamestown.
