INTRODUCTION:
Writing an introduction to a series in progress offers a conflict: having researched and photographed the subject for years, we should have a strong grasp of the material and what to say about it. However, if the ongoing development of the series is fluid, the introduction for each successive volume, while perhaps sketched in mind, will never be cast in concrete in advance.
The aim of each volume is not to cover a set of lines, or a small geographic area, but instead to take a fresh look each time at the local railroading scene in general.
In this volume, we have concentrated on pictures of selected lines, with less variety overall than in the initial volume. If we stress several lines now, or omit one or two, it is because that is where this railroad ramble has taken us. If we stray a bit too far from what most would call the "Niagara Frontier," then this author asks, what is that thing anyway? Some say Erie and Niagara Counties. Others suggest Western New York - but then what exactly is that?
So, we have stretched our definitions and imaginations a bit, and in turn find two Nickel Plate Road Berkshires near Erie, Pennsylvania (but what stunning pictures!), an Amtrak train just west of Rochester, and other views of trains in Batavia, Fort Erie, and Olean. To the isolated reader ready and quick to protest this perceived violation of theme or something or other, this author says only that it could be worse. There are, after all, trains which run in farther away places. For but two examples, Conrail runs right past the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant, and the Moscow-to-Khmelnitsky railroad line runs within view of the nuclear power plant in Chernobyl, Ukraine. And your author, it goes without saying, has interests in both these railroad lines, as well as both those places. Shall we stick with just a different definition of the Niagara Frontier?
