CSXT 913 leading train Q367-06 out of DeWitt Yard

 While out running an errand in downtown Syracuse, I decided to take a quick detour over to DeWitt Yard to see if any trains were arriving or departing. Upon arriving I spotted a manifest train sitting on the North Runner track. The train started to move west, as I was driving down toward Bridge Street, but was moving slow enough that I was able to capture a few images.

CSXT 913 and CSXT 450 leading Q367-06

Leading train Q367-06 was CSXT 913 and CSXT 450. I caught the train as it snaked it its way along the North Runner track on the western side of DeWitt Yard. The train had made a stop in DeWitt Yard to switch freight cars before moving on to Bedford Park, IL. (near Chicago, IL.). Q367 originates in Worcester, MA.

The North Runner track, as its name implies, runs along the northern edge of the yard. The track curving to the right of North Runner is the Inbound track. To the right of the Inbound track is the New Lead track that leads into the South Runner. The two closet tracks in the foreground are Track 2 (closest) and Track 1 of the Syracuse Terminal Subdivision (STS). The North Runner runs the entire length of DeWitt Yard.

Above, CSXT 913 leads Q367-06 at East Manlius Street and Hartwell Street. The train is passing by CP285, and it will head to Track 1, via CP286 to the west of this location. Soon, Q367 will be heading west on the Syracuse Terminal Subdivision. Q367 runs daily between Worcester, MA., and Bedford Park, IL.

  1. Dewitt Yard seems to provide some nice opportunities for good shots.

    1. The center of the yard is difficult to photograph, except from an overpass bridge with chain link fencing, but the east and west ends of the yard have good public access.
