That triple meet is extremely rare to catch. Great angle too.

Some St. Lawrence Sub action in northern NY, lots of CN run-through power if you like to see that.

Some slightly shaky camera work, I do apologize. Shot with phone cameras, but I think the quality is surprisingly good.

You're welcome cc!

I've even got a couple more, again on the St. Lawrence Sub in northern NY. 4 trains/day makes railfanning tough, but the chases are more exciting I suppose.

Its much easier for me to railfan the remote freight lines like the St. Lawrence sub when you're out there taking videos!

Thanks again.

2 short mixed intermodal trains. Lots of horsepower for not a lot of cars.

More Mohawk Sub action coming soon!

As promised, more Mohawk Sub action!

25 minutes of footage from Fonda, NY: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2iCHc0bsTzI" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Somewhat of a slow day (especially in the midafternoon), fewer trains than normal. Still a fun day.

35 minutes of trains in several NY towns: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nga1z4mFR7k" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Did a little location swapping this time, missed a couple trains but the changes of scenery were nice. Lots of foreign power (NS, BNSF) and lots of action made for a nice couple of days.

Hopefully will have some more videos but no more Mohawk Sub for now, located in PA for the summer so I'll be frequenting the lines in that area!

Finally got some video out here in Pennsylvania!

Short visit w/ interesting power: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7s8takuRJA" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
A quick visit to the tracks after work. Includes some foreign power on the NS and rebuilt SD40-3's on CSX.

30+ minutes of CSX action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Pxg11oJWTc" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
A much longer video in some rural locations. Features a nice colorful lashup on a CSX manifest and lots of intermodal traffic.

More action from northwestern PA and northeastern OH!

30 minutes of action in Conneaut, OH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKHMCyjUcQo" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
A busy yet hazy day. Foreign power includes CP and CEFX leasers. Nickle Plate 755 is visible in one shot.

30 minutes of action in Lake City, PA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fM2V-u8Rf_g" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Another busy day on the Erie West Sub. Foreign power includes UP, BNSF, NS, and CEFX leasers. Includes a meet at speed between 2 intermodals.

I've also got many videos from a particular location I've visited several times, and will be uploading footage from those trips in a multi-part series!

Finally had a chance to put together more of the footage from this summer!

40 minutes of action in Westfield, NY: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQhmXr-fV9o" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Filmed at a local railfan park created though the hard work of several volunteers. They've done a great job, I encourage any who live close by to make the trip there.

Part 1 of what will be a 5 part series filmed at the Lake Shore Railway Museum in North East, PA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xr8x680lPLU" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Another location made possible by the hard work of several volunteers. There are many interesting exhibits and great train watching. Another location I encourage anyone to visit if they get the chance!

As a bonus, some St. Lawrence Sub action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMH2K2Lr8Mc" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
SD40-3 on point, GP40-2 bringing up the rear of the consist. Nice little horn echo too.

Quite a bit of foreign power on both CSX and NS, also features a "race" meet between CSX and NS.
