CSXT 3163 and CSXT 477 leading train Q162-15 at Warners, NY

While out driving some errands, I made a quick detour to Warners, NY., to see if there was any railroad action happening on the CSX Rochester Subdivision. After waiting for a bit at Pottery Road, I decided to head west a few miles to Herman Road, on the eastern edge of Warners. As I drove down Herman Road and crossed the tracks I spotted that the block signals to the west of Herman Road were on. 

After a few minutes of waiting, the headlight and ditch lights of train Q162-15 became visible in the far distance. Train Q162-15 was creeping along very slowly, so it took it a few minutes before it got near to the crossing. Below, CSXT 3163 and CSXT 477 lead the train as it approaches the Herman Road crossing, at mile post 299.12.

After the locomotives passed through the crossing at Herman Road, the train neared the signals to the east of the crossing. The high green had Q162-15 cleared into Slovay, NY., where the Rochester Subdivision ends and the Syracuse Terminal Subdivision begins (at CP296). Here is a link to some video footage I captured of the train as it passed.

The last photo is of  an old New York Central milepost marker along the line. After Q162-15 had passed the Herman Road crossing, the milepost marker for mile 299 became visible. I've spotted a few of these old markers along the line during my explorations. The mileposts along the line count the distance from New York City.
