CSXT 833 leading I017 at CP280 of the Syracuse Terminal Subdivision

Early on December 22, 2021, the Syracuse, New York, area had snow flurries falling, heavily at times. There wasn't much snow accumulating on the ground, but there were enough flurries falling that I thought they would make for an interesting photograph with a train.

I017 at CP280

My youngest and I went to Kirksville, New York, and as I drove east on Saintsville Road I saw the headlight of priority intermodal train I017-22. The train was to the east of the Kirksville Road North crossing, which is a half of a mile east of Control Point (CP) 280. I parked along Saintsville Road to the west of CP280, located at milepost QC280.5, and took my photograph.

Train I017 runs daily from Worcester, Massachusetts, to Bedford Park, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. With CSXT 833 and CSXT 473 leading, plus mid-train distributed power unit (DPU) CSXT 3130, I017 wasn't losing any time as it rolled west on Track 2 of the STS. CSXT 3130 is tucked in between the double-stack cars in the background, close to the crossing signals. 

I017, with CSXT 833 and CSXT 473, split the block signals for Track 2 and Track 1 at CP280

  1. Nice shots in the snow! I have always wanted to get train shots in snow, especially steam ones. :-)

    1. Thanks, Shelly. Don't you get a fair amount of snow out in Kansas? It always seemed my friends who lived in KC for many years got a lot of snow coming out of Kansas.
