  Yesterday, another round of snow fell on the Syracuse, New York, area. With snow falling, I162-27 makes its way into DeWitt Yard at Control Point (CP) 285 on the Inbound Lead. The Inbound Lead diverges from Track 1 of the Syracuse Terminal Subdivision at CP 286, a half mile to the west of CP 285, and leads into DeWitt Yard. The Inbound Lead isn't officially part of CP 285. I162 is heading to the South Runner to work the intermodal departure yard. I162 runs daily from North Baltimore, Ohio, to Port Newark, New Jersey.

  1. Saw, or maybe "heard" is a better word, CSX freight trains last night/this morning while taking the Amtrak Autotrain from Sanford Florida to Lorton Virginia.
    284 vehicles and 518 passengers on the 49 car train.
    No snow on the ground, but snowed/rained all the way aswe drove to Harrisburg PA

    1. That route is also a very busy CSX line. Hopefully, they didn't keep you up all night.

  2. I like the grainy look it gives the photo. Very nice. Glad you are getting some more snow.

    1. Thanks, Shelly. That's a good way of describing it. I hadn't thought of it as grain.
