AMTK 108 leading the Lake Shore Limited at Weedsport, NY

 

With fresh snowfall, the Lake Shore Limited rounds the curve at Oakland Road.

  With a coating of fresh snow on the ground in the Central New York area I caught Amtrak's Lake Shore Limited, led by a trio of locomotives. AMTK 108, Amtrak's Phase VI 50th Anniversary schemed locomotive was leading the train, followed by AMTK 107, and AMTK 94. Here, the train is eastbound on CSX's Rochester Subdivision, rounding the curve at Oakland Road at Weedsport, New York. This area is referred to as Centerport by the railroad. Centerport was an old port on the Erie Canal that sits between Port Byron, New York, and Weedsport, New York.

  1. The snow certainly is nice, makes a more pleasing image (in my mind) in the winter as compared to bare fields

    1. I completely agree. Snow makes most photographs better in my opinion. We've had so little snow so far that I was lucky to get out for a bit with the snow still so pristine.

  2. Excellent image! That Anniversary locomotive really pops against the snow. Love this!
