Fall colors and CSXT 4089 switching at DeWitt Yard

 While waiting for train I001-02 at the "Green Bridge," on the eastern edge of DeWitt Yard, in Minoa, New York, I spotted CSXT 4089 and another unknown CSX locomotive switching in the Local Yard. The fall colors along DeWitt Yard were at about their peak it seemed and made for a nice background to CSXT 4089.

While CSXT 4089 was switching, there was track work happing close by. It looked like rail replacement work was being done on one of the two stub tracks on the eastern end of the yard. These tracks are, I believe, for switching work at the yard.

  1. Lovely autumn shot! Neat maintenance shot. That would be interesting to watch.

    1. Thank you, Shelly. We had a so-so fall here. There were some good colors, but it seemed like a lot of the fall colors were subdued.
