There's also an ex-NYO&W bridge about the same distance to the north, used to reach a customer in New Hartford. I'm sure those bridges will be closely inspected before a train is allowed to cross them.


Holy moly!

I haven't heard anything and I keep checking the paper, but they are obviously getting the line ready, we see MOW vehicles going up and down the line a lot.

JT Bernier asked, "Running light?"

Yes, they picked up 8 cars (7 covered hoppers & 1 tanker) in Sangerfield then returned to Utica.

I'm somewhat surprised they're not running a handful of cars down to Binghamton themselves, although with the engine facility gone there's no need to move power in and out anymore.
