Trackside log for Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Sam asked me along on a short trip to Syracuse, New York to visit a friend. The idea was to drive leisurely there with a few photographic diversions. I decided to follow the Falls Road line in search of anything interesting. In Medina we encountered the Medina Railroad Museum and their New York Central painted E8s and former Waterloo-St. Jacobs passenger equipment.

  • 1157 Medina, NY - power - RPCX 4068-RPCX 4080 with coaches RPCX 5735, RPCX 2143 and RPCX 761

Next we headed back toward the CSX mainline and had some time to park trackside to wait for any traffic that might be in the area.

  • 1414 Churchville, NY - Amtrak 64 east - AMTK 110
  • 1428 Churchville, NY - Amtrak 63 west - AMTK 43
  • 1458 Churchville, NY - CSX eastbound - CSXT 5377-CSXT 860

The weather was getting darker and we were due in Syracuse for about 1700 so after the intermodal train we drove straight to our destination.
