CSXT 778 and CSXT 5365 lead train Q560-07, at Kirkville, NY

After visiting my kids favorite park in Minoa, NY., we decided to drive along Saintsville Road and see if we spotted any indication of a train. As luck would have it, we saw a manifest freight slowly departing DeWitt Yard.


We quickly headed down Saintsville Road to Automatic 280 on the Syracuse Terminal Subdivision (STS). I like to incorporate the road here into my shots if I can, but after arriving at Auto 280 I began to wonder if the car driving east down the road would obstruct my composition. However, once again, luck was on my side and Q560-07 got to us first, as it rolled by on Track 2 of the STS.

Q560 is a manifest freight train that travels from Cincinnati, OH., to Selkirk, NY. Today, Q560-07 was running with the two locomotives, and sixty-seven freight cars.
