  S990 is a special high-and-wide movement from General Electric at Schenectady, New York that is destined to the Smithboro, Illinois, (on the BNSF). This dimensionally-restricted train slowly made its way from Syracuse, New York, to Rochester, New York. Due to the size of the turbine S990 is carrying the train often has to stop and wait at places that allow other trains to safely pass. The train is also restricted to traveling at much slower speeds than a standard train. 

S990 is crossing westbound over Onondaga Creek on the southern end of Onondaga Lake.
