CSXT 3087 leading CSX train I004-18 at Warners, NY.

 Last Saturday, after catching CSX train X626-18 led by Union Pacific locomotives at Memphis, New York, I caught CSX intermodal train I004-18 further to the east at Warners, New York. 

I004-18 eastbound at Warners, NY.

CSXT 3087 leading I004-18 east of CP300 at Warners, NY.

Above, I004-18 is eastbound on Track 2 of the Rochester Subdivision and is cresting a small hill. This spot is just to the east of control point (CP) 300 (milepost (MP) QC 300.7), near Warners Road. Through the trees and brush on the right side of the photograph you can see a red signal on one of the westbound control point block signals. The westbound signals are about 3,100 feet from me. 

The old NYC milepost 300 stands about 500 feet east of Warners Road
The old NYC milepost 300 still stands about 500 feet east of Warners Road.

Across the tracks and about 300 feet east of my position is the old New York Central milepost for mile 300. The Rochester Subdivision was once part of the NYC's Water Level Route. The miles on the Rochester Subdivision count up going west from Grand Central Terminal in New York City.

    1. It's nice that the old mileposts are still mostly standing along the line. And the ones that I have seen are still in really good condition.
