CN 2838 and CSXT 39 on Q560-02 at DeWitt Yard

  Q560 is a daily manifest train that originates at CSX's Queensgate Yard in Cincinnati, Ohio, and travels to its final destination at Selkirk Yard in Selkirk, New York. Earlier this month, I came across CSX Q560-02 with Canadian National (CN) 2838 and CSXT 39 on the point at DeWitt Yard waiting for a new crew.

  Q560-02 sat on the east end of the North Runner at DeWitt Yard in Minoa, New York. The train had arrived at DeWitt Yard in the early morning, after passing through Fairport, New York, at 03:35 AM. Depending on traffic, trains generally take an hour and a half to cover the distance between Fairport and Syracuse.

  The day I caught Q560-02 was the day that CSX implemented the new "M" prefix for manifest train symbols. Any train originating after midnight on June 4, 2022, would have the new prefix. However, this train still had the "Q" prefix because it originated on June 2.
