CSXT 112 leading train Q560 at DeWitt Yard

 Back on the morning of October 2, 2021, I was photographing trains on the western end of CSX's DeWitt Yard. A few hours later I wound up on the eastern end of the yard, at what is locally known as the Green Bridge. A pedestrian bridge that crosses over the tracks between North Main Street and South Main Street, in Minoa, New York.

Earlier in the day, I caught CSX train Q560-01, being led by CSXT 112 and CSXT 5350 coming east into DeWitt Yard at CP285, in East Syracuse, New York. Later in the day I wound up on the eastern end of the yard, at Minoa, New York. After CSXT 4089 and CSXT 4046 were done switching on the east end of DeWitt Yard and had cleared the track, Q560-01 showed up.

Q560 is a daily manifest freight train that originates at Queensgate Yard, in Cincinnati, Ohio, and terminates at Selkirk, New York. The train makes stops along the way to work in different yards, with DeWitt being one of those yards.

Back on September 8, I caught Q560 at CP280 on the Syracuse Terminal Subdivision. Control Point 280 is about two miles east of DeWitt Yard's eastern edge. CP280 is at milepost QC280.5, along Saintsville Road.
