  Back in October 2022, I009-18 was working DeWitt Yard using the South Runner and when the train was ready to depart it got lined out of the yard via the Inbound Lead to Control Point (CP) 286. The Inbound Lead leads to Track 1 of the Syracuse Terminal Subdivision at CP 286. CP 286, along with CP 285, control movements into and out of the west end of CSX's DeWitt Yard.

The end of I009 clears the curve at CP 286, revealing M621 sitting on Track 8

  After I009 had cleared CP 286, the dispatcher lined manifest train M621-18 (Massena, NY., to Selkirk, NY.) off of Track 8 to Track 2 at CP 286. CSXT 3041 led M621 quickly off of Track 8 to Track 1, and then to Track 2 to continue its journey east to Selkirk.

  1. Likely not as complicated as it sounds, but seeing as to how the trains have to stay on the tracks 🙄 it isn't as easy as shuffling trucks around. Thx for the detail Tom

    1. Not complicated, as long as the remote-controlled switches work.

  2. Really nice autumn shots too. I love the composition of the one with the signal tower in the middle.
