Any reason why the 99 seems to be smaller? It usually goes by my house late but used to seem like it was a pretty decent size train now it sounds around the same as the 100 which is usually smaller minus the garbage cars.

Looks like the 'superstackers' and wide-cabs are back (in other developments on the "Q"). :-D

Crew for detour of SU100 via CSX is on duty at 205 pm today Wednesday 7-3. Crew will taxi to Dewitt yard in Syracuse to get the necessary paperwork then taxi to the train itself. Train is operating on CSX as symbol Z224-03. Probably wont depart Syracuse much before dinner time.
Proficient on the Southern Tier Line, The former PRR Elmira Branch, A little LV, A lot of EL, And of course, the Corning Secondary. Someone always knows more than me. Remember the Binghamton yardmaster that routinely said in a high voice, "No! No! No! That's not what I told you to do!"?

Is CSX still detouring through here? It's 6:45 AM and I swear a CSX freight just went by my house (I'm near Wortendyke Station in Midland Park). I couldn't get to any good vantage point in any time to see what it was so I was left with trying to see it out my living room window through the trees. Looked like 3 diesels, maybe GPs of some kind, and they didn't look like Susquehanna yellowjackets or the Norfolk Southern leasers I see frequently. It's also a weird time for a train to go through here, and on Wednesdays the NYS&W is usually going in the other direction (towards Binghamton).

Do I need to get more sleep?

no detours for over a month. You may have seen the nysw local heading west or east. They have a ns and csx gp38-2 on lease.

I've seen CSX 2732 go by the house. And NS 5291 and 5294; think they are all GP38s. There were 3 diesels on this one and I swore they all looked like CSX colors, but I guess not.

The schedule seems to be a little funny of late though, no? Some nights the SU doesn't seem to go by until as late as 6:30 and maybe even later. And I recall a Thursday where a train went by here heading west with 3 or 4 Yellowjackets and 79 cars. That's normal SU99 material, but on a Thursday?

And I swear that as I typed that paragraph above, I heard the diesel horns go, and the crossing gates go off, and four Yellowjackets (couldn't see road #s) and 71 cars went by. Just now at about 6:50 PM on Thursday. Did the normal 99 schedule change? M-W-F for SU99, no?

Per one of the mailing lists, last sunday's SU-100 was annulled- so the schedule this week is off by one day. That would have indeed been a rare Thursday SU-99 you saw.

Anyone have an updated schedule on SU99 or SU 100 as of 10/21/13? I was hoping to perhaps get some video of the old L&HR section. I see stuff on You Tube.Right now every other Monday and every Weds. are free for me.

Hello,
SU-99 runs Monday's, Wednesday's, and Friday's. They have been leaving Bogota around 16:00 lately, but there is not really a set schedule. I usually see them on the L&HR in Vernon anytime between 18:30 and 20:00. As for the SU-100, I do not know as much about it because I am usually asleep by the time it comes through. I sometimes will hear it between 1:00 and 2:30.
Here are the links for some Yahoo Groups that may be of some help, members usually post location and time they see trains...
