I was upstate in Johnstown this weekend where I managed to get the John
Deere stuck in the mud. On the way back home today i was pleased to see
Guilford # 54 coupled long hood east to a consist at Rotterdam Junction.
This was probably just the local coupled to the road power. The consist
was 54, 317,347 and 690. By the way Guilford pang for a new trailer at
RJ that they leased from William Scotsman.
Further along I saw one of the GE units outside the plant but could not
see the number because of the height of the guardrail.
At the old Sandbank yard I spotted CSX 6201 shuffling cars.
As I passed Kenwood I saw CP 7308 sitting by the yard office with that
Wide Vision caboose. The northbound intermodal left town around 11:30
but I did not see the power as the kids and I were touring the Destroyer
Escort down by Dutch Apple Cruises. FWIW I recommend a visit to that
ship. For the five of us the admission was 29 bucks, not cheap, but not
like going to Yankee Stadium either. They give a nice guided tour and
the ship has been nicely restored........except that I was below deck
when the Intermodal left town.
I could hear it but not see it.
Some tid bits from my journey home.
