CSX manifest train M367 and Amtrak P284 pass at Memphis, NY

 In August 2022, I was in Memphis, New York, waiting on M367-23 when I heard Amtrak train P284-23 calling signals. M367 is a westbound manifest train, while P284 is one of Amtrak's eastbound Empire Serice trains. It sounded like they might meet close to Memphis.

M367-23 in the distance at CP 300, is westbound on Track 1 of the Rochester Subdivision

  The first train to show up was M367, led by CSXT 343 and CSXT 5450. Above, M367 is passing through CP 300 at Warners, New York. Within a minute, the train was thundering through the quite hamlet of Memphis, New York.

M367-23 approaches the Bennetts Corners Road crossing near milepost QC 302.5

  From the west came P284-23, led by AMTK 703, passing alongside M367-23. Rolling at or near track speed (80 MPH), P284 passed through Memphis quickly. A short time later P284 will be arriving in Syracuse, New York, before continuing on its journey to New York City.

P284 passes a string of empty BNSF grain hoppers just west of the crossing.

  1. Very nicely captured! I like the B&W one. I am partial to trains in B&W even though I don't do it that often either. :-)
