I have never chased Su-99. Is there an approximate time it might depart, and perhaps a few points on the line?
Thanks,
Lee


It usually leaves Bogota,NJ around 4:45pm
Wyckoff: 5:30pm
Butler: 6pm
Sparta: 7pm
Warwick: 8pm
Campbell Hall: 930pm
Port Jervis: 11pm
Binghamton: 2:30am

Note: These are average times, train may be at these locations at different times


Thank you!

If you happen to do the Facebook thing, join the NYSW group on there; someone usually posts the time the 99 leaves Ridgefield Park as it happens, and you can time it out from there more or less. I'm at MP 26.15 and I've got it pretty well timed out at about 40 mins or so once it leaves RP, depending on what it does between here and there.

We chased SU-99 on Friday, 6/26. It had been years since I had seen NYS&W, and I was surprised at how good the railroad looks, and how fast the train moves.
We were able to get several scenes between Oakland and Warwick, and missed several more. This means we will make another trip down from Connecticut to
catch the other spots. I would like to catch some of the locals as well, if able to find out where and when they run.
It was a fun afternoon and evening.

What time does SU99/SU100 pass through Narrowsburg?

I'm on the opposite side of the state, near Rochester.......but from what I have read, most movements
are during night-time hours. I'll do some looking to see if I can find out more approximate times.

These trains have been getting shorter...I am guessing a large environmental remediation project, removing contaminated soils, has ended, because I don't see the long strings of covered gondolas anymore.

What the heck did I hear this Thursday morning around 6 AM? A little late for the SU100 through Warwick..... I thought I heard a low flying helicopter, but it was an eastbound and the horn sounded like a Leslie 3 chime.... a detour maybe?
