On the way through Plattsburgh last week, I saw that the southbound was coming in, so we stopped and I tried a new view: the Cumberland Ave. overpass just north of the river.

Railfanning the D11

Last Thursday I railfanned the D11. It was so windy my tripod almost blew over. CP GP20C-ECO #2285 pulled a covered hopper towards New York Ave. Next, they opened up the derail and shoved the car into the siding. I am going on a trip soon, so look for “Trackside Blogs” coming out. -Harrison
