Victoria, 3-10 to 8-10-2004
While we were very busy in Detroit, we found some time to visit Delray Junction. We saw 5 trains over about 45 minutes over 2 days; not bad!
The CSX-operated tower, the last manned tower in Detroit.
On Friday, we stopped at Delray on the way to Woodhaven. A Norfolk Southern Intermodal was waiting north of the junction. A few minutes later, a unit Auto(go figure!) train from the south came slowly into sight, with quite a lashup: two BNSF, two CN, a Ferromex, a UP, and a CSX. I don’t even know what railroad was operating the train!
The train crossed over to the other main north of the junction.
After the train cleared the junction, the NS intermodal rolled through.
A Southern Pacific well car with one of those “ONE” containers.
Some of those “old” TWIN-STACK cars.
After the intermodal passed, we didn’t have to wait long before Gideon’s “train over by the tower” sent me running to catch a CSX light engine move.
The locos pulled past the crossing, and switched back onto their home tracks.
The next day, a CSX freight would almost beat us to the junction, but we made it just in time.
As the train approached the crossing, it stopped and reversed.
After a few minutes, the reason it reversed became apparent. An intermodal rolled through with UP and CN providing an interesting lashup.
As we went to leave, we realized we couldn’t leave until the intermodal cleared the crossing!
Next, it was on to Niagara Falls, and then Buffalo… -Harrison with Gideon
