MARTISCO
Title:  MARTISCO
Description:  Last year the Finger Lakes railway began leasing these "bluebirds" and now regularly use them on there GS-2 train..........aka the sweep train. Here we see them descending the grade at Martisco as they work their way toward Solvay yard. As you can see they're on welded rail here; at a point not far west from here the rail is jointed all the way to Geneva. Historically speaking this is the Auburn Road, and it's one of the oldest railroads in the USA. A long time ago there used to be a branch from here to Otisco; if you look hard enough you can trace the line still to this day.

Westbound
Title:  Westbound
Description:  A typical day of railfanning for me starts out in Solvay, NY at CP293 on CSX's water level route. In Solvay CSX interchanges with the Finger Lakes RR and the New York, Susquehanna & Western RR, so you can sometimes see a lot of action there. I got there around 10:00 this morning, then went to DeWitt, came back and noticed that the Geneva-Solvay turn was there. When it was obvious that they were leaving and heading back to Geneva, I decided to make the chase! Here they are approaching Vinegar Hill Road at 13:06.

Empty crude oil train
Title:  Empty crude oil train
Description:  First off I want to thank fellow contributor Chris G. for telling me about this one! According to what I heard on the scanner, this is CSX train K01103. Apparently these crude oil trains are new business for CSX and they are placing high priority on these movements. This train is near mile marker 304 on CSX's Rochester subdivision.

B790 & L091
Title:  B790 & L091
Description:  While watching CSX local train B790 work at the grain elevator in Jordan, NY we also saw the L091 (approaching on the mainline) with "sweet" UP power on it! A closer view of the L091 is in my album titled " The water level route- 2012".
