Today I headed out to Cheviot landing, this time to catch the southbound Ethan Allen from Rutland.
Next, we headed over the river for some CSX action. A former narrow-gauge railroad bridge made a great vantage point to photograph the Catskill Creek bridge.
Before long, a northbound manifest came through, a little later than I expected due to southbound traffic.
The train had a whopping 7 locomotives (6-1-0 configuration), including one of those elusive YN2 units.
And the best part of the train: a monster-sized flatcar, with 8 trucks and 16 axles!
On the way back, we stopped back in Cheviot for one last Amtrak, a northbound Empire Service.
Look for a Trackside Treks Episode soon. –Harrison
