If you're there NOW, they may be done for the day.............

But anyway..........there's a crossing on Rte 98 south of Rte 5. There's a crossing on Treadeasy (I think that's the name) just off 33 as you head out of town West. Not a ton of options.

If you park in the area south of the CSX crossing on Donahue Rd you can see the interchange and sometimes *IF YOU'RE LUCKY* the Alco will be there doing work.

Good luck!
