Western New York & Pennsylvania Railroad's Driftwood Turn heads south on their ex-PRR Buffalo Line passing through Turtlepoint, PA on February 9, 2011. At the time this photo was taken the Driftwood Turn was called at noon in Olean, and it departed 1-3 hours later. The power for this day's train was all six-axle MLWS: M630 No. 630 and M636s Nos. 637 and 43.
