I caught UT-1 2 day last week, Didn't go to Sangerfield either day, just Oneida Warehouse one day and some other work on the ex DL&W and west shore the second day. Crew said they only go to Sangerfield once, maybe twice a week but will e more starting in a few weeks for fertilizer.
Timing was about as has been reported elsewhere, although Fri. Am they were already heading down Schuyler St around 8:30 AM.
Is the branch to Oneida Warehouse (just the short spur off the former O&W Utica main) historic O&W trackage, post-O&W construction, or trackage of another RR spliced into the O&W? I would at face value assume it was a historically O&W spur, but have to wonder if with the more modern highway construction in the immediate vicinity, if it might have been originally configured differently and/or reached from somewhere other than the current switch off the O&W. I suspect that at least some trackage in the vicinity of the modern day RT 8/12 corridor and interchange has been shifted around a bit to accomodate the highway construction/widening/ realignments/interchanges etc.
