Last Saturday, we were just finishing up at robotics when I heard that a 650 was coming south. We headed down to South Junction Road, and after seeing them pass my webcam, I got set up. The power was the usual pair of GEs, but I enjoyed seeing a train on a perfect evening nonetheless. […]

It’s happened yet again. This time, the door was stolen off an ex-Erie Lackawanna E8 stored on the Batten Kill Railroad. Hal T. Raven shared yesterday that the 250 lb door was stolen, probably over the weekend as the last theft had. Hal (owner of Raven Rail LLC) and the Batten Kill have been the […]

On June 18th, I heard that 931 was coming north with a CN SD70M-2 leading. Having missed out on past SD70Ms, I didn’t want to miss this one. We headed out to South Junction Road to shoot them coming north, with a CP AC4400 trailing. A got a nice wave from the engineer (one which […]

After Corey and I visited 30T at Ballston Spa, we made our way north to the Adirondack Live Steamers. Although I can’t say exactly where the club is located, their merch says Saratoga Springs, NY. As we arrived, we were greeted by the “R’s Trains Fanclub”, the young members of the club who follow Corey’s […]

While railfanning with Corey, we made a stop at Mohawk Valley Railroad Co. in Schenectady, NY. I’ve covered the store multiple times before, so I’ll just share a few photos I took. Delaware and Hudson were happy for some attention, and for once they were both awake at the same time. Most of the locomotives […]

Last Saturday (wait, am I almost caught up?) we took a day trip south to hang out with Corey. We had a basic plan: Railfan in the morning and visiting the Adirondack Live Steamers in the afternoon. We arrived at his house shortly after 9:30, but before we had a chance to decide the plan, […]

Before I begin, what is the correct way to indicate the plural of “Dash 8” or any locomotive? I believe it should be “Dash 8s”, but that looks wrong to me. Over Memorial Day Weekend, we visited relatives near Watertown, NY. Of course, my first question was could we take a day trip down to […]

There are a lot of posts I still have not made that are getting old, so here I’ve combined 3 separate outings, both to downtown Plattsburgh. One Saturday afternoon I was itching to get out, especially after missing a grain train that morning. Fortunately for me, 931 was still sitting in the siding at Bluff […]
