Victoria, 3-10 to 8-10-2004
I didn’t forget how fast paced and exciting the Empire Corridor is, so when we had to go to Utica, NY, I jumped to the opportunity to do some more “fast” railfanning.
As we passed under a stopped train in Ballston Spa, NY, the D45 rolled over us. No good pics though.
As we arrived in Amsterdam, A CSX Eastbound Grain train was disappearing, signifying a lull in trains coming. As we approached the station, crossing gates went down and we pulled off the road just in time to video an Eastbound Empire Service leaving the station.
The Amsterdam train station, though unstaffed, is a nice building.
We waited. And waited. AND waited. No Trains. When we finally decided to head for Utica, lights from the east prompted us to pull over and video a Westbound intermodal. Short notice, a fast train, and video camera malfunction caused a quick decision to video this one. Others got some pics.
We hit the road, but a rest stop provided a Eastbound manifest with two big GE’s and a GP40-2, making a perfect shot along the Erie Canal. It was amazing to see the train stretch from edge to edge, showing how long the train is.
And here come the trash cars…
Part 2: On to Utica, More westbounds, an Amtrak heritage unit, and railfanning from our hotel room, and a video coming soon.NCT
