The year 2020 probably makes you cringe and think of masks, quarantine, and of course, covid. Compared to last year, this year’s railfanning was not that great. The Adirondack was cancelled in March, the quarantine prevented any trips for the first half of the year, and even once I got out to the tracks, the number of […]

I just finished uploading the video I made from today’s railfanning adventure, and since it was (probably) the last railfanning of the year, I decided to make it a end of 2020 special video, and it will premiere tomorrow at 11:45 PM (that way, after you watch it for 5:18 you can get ready to […]

Yesterday morning we headed out to Catskill to catch Q003 and L007. (Q007 is L on Sundays and Mondays) We got bored waiting for them to pass a couple southbounds, so we headed down to the old factory area. We were heading back to Catskill when I heard “Q003 clear 108” which sent me into […]

Today we had some time to railfan on the way down for Christmas. Things were still pretty slow due to the railroad holiday, but we caught a few trains between Schenectady and Selkirk, NY. We headed to Burdeck Street in Schenectady, and an eastbound Intermodal/Autorack was coming through. Didn’t catch the symbol. Oh well, missed […]

I posted pictures, but it’s not the same as watching the train race around the tree at unprototypically high speeds while listening to some nice bluegrass Christmas music, is it?

Cover photo: NS 931 heads through the snow in November 2018. First of all, Merry Christmas from my fellow writers and I. I have not had a chance to set up the train under the tree yet this year, but Gideon might do it if you beg hard enough in the comments… Here’s the train […]
