Victoria, 3-10 to 8-10-2004
The Saturday we were returning from our trip happened to be national train day, so of course, we had to see some trains. We headed out around 9 AM and stopped in Catskill when I saw a green signal. A few minutes later, the defect detector a couple of miles to the north went off and a southbound manifest appeared on the horizon.
CSX Manifest Q403 rolled to a stop on the siding, awaiting a higher priority train from the south.
A few minutes later, northbound intermodal/autorack combo Q157 rolled north on the main.
This train was pretty long, and once it cleared Q403 made no move to head south. I correctly assumed that this was to wait for Q003 and Q007, which were somewhere behind Q157. We were aiming to catch some trains farther north, so while I would’ve loved to chase trains along the River Line all day, we hit the road north. Because I didn’t know where any trains on the NS/CP were, we headed out to Amsterdam where Q115 flew by right after we arrived. Boy it felt good to be back in Amsterdam, as it’s been a couple of years since I was last there.
Q115 was short, as I imagine it usually is. This train runs Worchester-Syracuse, and is the only lower-priority intermodal on the Berkshire Line. The station in Amsterdam was packed with foamers, and not wanting to intrude on them with my calmness (yes, I am calm in comparison to them), we headed down to the signal pulloff. Shortly after the relocation, Q157 flew by once again, having made it through Selkirk ahead of the high priority trains.
Although at least a few more trains were coming in on the CSX, not to mention action on the NS Freight Line, we had to get home to get our poor little doggy from the kennel by 3 PM. This created a problem. It was already noon, meaning we hardly had any time left. After grabbing lunch, we found a solution that satisfied everyone… -Harrison
