Here's where the action is
Title:  Here's where the action is
Description:  A westbound mixed freight goes through on track 1 of the main; ahead of it on track 2 is a gondola with an "End of Train" device affixed; that's the end of the Y111-1. After the westbound freight clears on out of here, the Y111-1 will back-up on to the Geddes St. lead and deliver some cars to the NYS&W. Tied down on the track to the left is a slug-set (CSX 2359&6959); and on the siding tracks between the mainline and the NY state fairgrounds are a grain train led by CSX 7911, and a coal drag led by CSX 806!

In other words, the track that leads away, and to the right, goes along the front entrance of the New York state fairgrounds and up into Baldwinsville and Fulton, where CSX services Budweiser and Bird's Eye frozen foods.

CSX 8541
Title:  CSX 8541
Description:  I don't think this is the Q621 here at the south end of the St. Lawrence-sub. I thought I heard dispatch call to a local (B) train here at CP291. Anyway, after the taxi service finished assisting crews two miles west of here, they drove down the right of way to pick these guys up and take them to DeWitt yard in order to get another locomotive for this train. I don't know what the problem was.
