Victoria, 3-10 to 8-10-2004
We headed for Utica, arriving just in time to see the Westbound Amtrak we saw at lock 13 leaving.
We headed into the station, and when we came back out the loco of a eastbound intermodal had just passed, moving about 10 MPH.
CSX ES44AC-H #3123 was the rear train DPU.
Moments after the train cleared the platform, a westbound UPS Z-train roared through, with the following locomotives: ES44AH #3038, ES40DC #5413, ET44AH #3324, and ES44AH #917.
This is where UPS trailers belong!
A little while later, Amtrak 48, the eastbound Lake Shore Limited, arrived at the station, about 3 hours late. Two Amtrak P42DC’s lead the train.
The Dining car attendant, aboard the Columbus, said the heavy eastbound freight traffic and a signal malfunction caused the delay.
While the Lake Shore was at the station, the Mohawk, Adirondack & Northern Railroad was switching with three Alco Roadswitchers! I was in heaven!
I headed up to the bridge, and a eastbound manifest thundered under me, with Union Pacific C45ACCTE #5999 leading.
On the train was a depressed center, 4 truck flatcar.
We got ready for some more Amtrak action, but there was more in store…(look for part 3!) -Harrison
