CSX train I162, led by CSXT 7233, on the Rochester Subdivision

With a bit of snow still on the ground, from a light snow fall the day before, I headed out to Warners, New York, to catch intermodal train I162-02 coming by the old New York Central (NYC) 298 milepost. 

Train I162-15, led by CSXT 7233, is east bound at MP QC298 of the Rochester Subdivision

The old NYC milepost is just to the west of Pottery Road and sits on the south side of the tracks. These old mileposts count the distance from Grand Central Terminal, which was built by the NYC, in New York City. There are many of these old mileposts (see the fifth photo linked post) still standing along the Rochester Subdivision, which was part of NYC's old Water Level Route through New York.

I162 is a daily intermodal train that runs from North Baltimore, Ohio, to Port Newark, New Jersey. I162 works Collinwood Yard at Cleveland, Ohio, Frontier Yard at Buffalo, New York, and DeWitt Yard at Syracuse, New York.

    1. Thanks, Shelly. There are still a lot of these old mileposts along the ex-NYC lines up here. They definitely add a nice touch to the scenery.
