CSX M367 and Amtrak P284 at DeWitt Yard in East Syracuse, NY.

  When I arrived at DeWitt Yard's western end, CSX train M367-07 was sitting on the North Runner. It was led by BNSF 7268 and CSXT 941. The orange pumpkin was a nice splash of vibrant color and a change of pace from the standard CSX blue here.

  Train M367 is the new symbol that took effect at midnight on June 4, 2022, and replaced the old train symbol Q367. This prefix symbol change is another that CSX has implemented over the last nine months. The "M" stands for manifest. M367, like Q367 was, is a daily manifest freight train that originates at CSX's Selkirk Yard in Selkirk, New York. The train's final destination is Chicago, Illinois. Along the way, M367 stops at DeWitt Yard to set out and pick up freight cars. According to a friend, if you don't hear the crew call out the train's symbol, a common way to identify M367 is if you see refrigerated box cars on the train.

  A short time later, P284-07, led by AMTK 709, rolled east on Track 2 of the Syracuse Terminal Subdivision at CP285. P284 had just left the Syracuse Amtrak Station and was heading to its next stop at Rome, New York. P284 runs daily from Niagara Falls, New York, to New York City.

  1. Drone or bridge shots? Very nice either way. Pumpkin color. LOL I hadn't heard it referred to as that but it sure is!

    1. Drone shots. I like using the drone to get shots that have the look of being taken from a bridge rather than way up in the sky. Though, I do like the way-up-in-the-sky look to.
