What lines, or even what lines on what railroad, specifically?

This couldn't be any more vague of a question, knowing that freights don't have set schedules anyway..

Despite some initial vagueness, amazing that 214 people can view this thread and no one knows anything worth a reply? Seems the way of this site.

I don't have the answer, but I do know that PanAm is not part of the G&W--not yet, anyway.

SLR and NECR's main road freights run in the middle of the night. Being somewhere along the line between 10pm and 5am is honestly the best answer I could give someone.

Typical of many freight railroads these days there really is no "set" schedule. SLR 393 usually leaves Lewiston Jct. sometime
after 9 PM, maybe as late as midnight, Monday thru Friday. 394 Leaves Island Pond at a similar time so as to meet 393 at
Berlin, NH and swap trains with 394 usually back into Lewiston, Jct. before 5AM. On the other end 393 leaves Island Pond
7-8 Am for Richmond, returning late afternoon/ early evening. A CN turn out of Montreal may make Richmond late morning
and CN's timing likely drives the timing of everything else- CN being late makes the other trains late. The times seem to be
gradually shifting later as time goes by- 393 used leave Lewiston Jct. about 6 PM 7-8 years ago and could be seen in daylight
on the east end. Another wrinkle is that it is not unusual for the train not to run on Wednesday. Train 513 is a road switcher
that works between Lewiston Jct. and South Paris usually leaving 2-3 PM Monday thru Friday but again it may not go to
South Paris if there is not enough work. There also used to be locals working out of Richmond but if they still operate or
not I don't know- I haven't seen them discussed in recent times. Hope this helps.

Typically the NYS&W sends a train up from Binghamton to Syracuse on Saturday as the BH-1. It could be there anytime from late morning to early afternoon. The Geddes Street area is a decent place to look. Once there the train will drop off and pick up cars as necessary. Also be on the lookout for an SY-1, the syracuse local that works from CP 293 on CSX to the Geddes St. Lead. Usually a lone SD40-2.

The train will then head back south stopping in Jamesville to pick up stone. It will then continue south through Apulia and into Tully where it may switch out Agway. From the they will go south into Preble and tie the train down at Curry Rd. For the night if time permits them to get this far.

On Sunday a CL-1 crew will pick the train up to take it south to Binghamton. They may have to work Cortland as well.
