Falls Road Railroad operations

Postby Brian Seward » Wed Nov 05, 2008 1:48 pm

I was on my way to my research methods class at Brockport a few weeks ago and I finally got to see a train roll by (more like fly by). Would anyone happen to know the hours of operation for the Falls Road RR? I'd like to get a few shots of that train. :-)

The local from Lockport To Brockport and back usually runs Mon-Wed-Fri. I would guess it to be in the Brockport area in early afternoon.

Last I knew, it was around Noon to 2 PM, sometimes as early as 10 AM. I usually hang out over on Park Ave. and wait until I hear a horn.

the train is usually in brockport around noon, give or take an hour. and i think the bridge from the library to the brown building over the tracks would be the best place to watch trains from when on campus.
can usually be found along the CSX mainline between cp382 and cp393 watching,videotaping or just photograghing trains with my wife and 6 year old son.
