Local Video from the Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York
Herzog and Tractors

Watch out for those stray tractors! My latest batch of footage from the CSX Chicago Line in Western NY kicks off with two scenes from my home-away-from-home, Pixley Road crossing just west of Rochester, for shots of Q169 and L161 on July 8th. Then, footage from a big trip out on July 14th is featured, as myself and two friends attempt to wait for Q351 with CN/IC power. Although Q351 was due through Rochester in daylight, striking a tractor in Utica, some 175 miles to the east, delayed it as well as most other westbound trains that night, and we never did shoot our target train. Even so, I did manage to capture Q279 with an AC60/CSX Dash-9 pair, more Dash-9s and an SD60 on Q377, a RARE Herzog ballast train with great power, Q161 with an SD50 trailing, trains B796, P283, and Q122, Q380 with shiny new BNSF ES44DCs, plus a final shot of Amtrak train P049, once we learn that Q351 won't be headed our way any time soon. Finally, the video ends with a grab shot from Pix of Q390 on the 15th on the way back from hanging out with a non-railfan friend... Enjoy! Coming up next- my shot of UP Heritage unit 1982, so stay tuned!!
