As per The Unofficial Metro North Railroad group on Facebook there will be a Charter train on the Harlem Line to Wassaic this Saturday morning 10/15 when it leaves GCT at 9:30 AM. It will have #211 on the south end, 3 Inspection cars and Shoreliner MOUNTAIN LAUREL" 6251 in the middle and #402 on the north end. This is for a Special Leaf Watching.

I caught it somewhere on the lower Harlem on my way to the city Saturday. I left on the 8AM through-train out of Wassaic. The only reason I even really noticed it at speed was the fluted-sides on the inspection cars and the trailing dual-mode caught my eye. I'm starting to become pretty complacent as a railfan, even the BL14's in GCT are no longer as interesting to me, haha.
"That sapling that once grew just south of Wassaic may be long gone, and the Harlem Line’s appearance may have changed over the years, but for decades to come, I can count on it continuing to provide me with funny recollections"
