Oil Train on MHWA in Utica

Postby Trainmanal4243 » Mon Mar 02, 2015 5:02 pm

the MHWA line from Utica to Lyons Falls does not have much activity when the Adirondack Scenic is not operating from January to March. A grain car or two to Boonville every other week. Today CSX put a loaded crude oil train on the line with the BNSF ES44C4 6512 and CSX ES44DC 5361 with a 110 cars streached out across the Utica Marsh to the Canal Bridge. Snow and Ice condition on the Hudson River and New Jersey lines have a back log of trains on most controlled sidings east of Buffalo.

From the above, one is led to believe there is no longer (or at least, not currently) any traffic at, or operations to, Lyons Falls; is this correct?
