Unlike the previous eastbound CSX intermodal freight, this one headed down the West Shore Bypass.

The tail end of the stack train has cleared the crossing and heads down the West Shore Bypass.

The 4th CSX freight, a westbound intermodal, heads into the sunset just west of Chili Junction.

After a short time, the fifth and final train of the evening corssed Attridge Road. Like its predecessors, this was also an intermodal run.

The motive power of the 5th intermodal train reflected in the standing water just west of Chili Jct.

As the 5th intermodal train of the evening disappeared into the sunset, I decided to call it a night. There will be more chances to visit Chili Jct next  month... and I look forward to it.

Three weeks passed... and I returned to my weekend haunt at Chili Junction. As has been the case on numerous occasions, I was greeted by a distant train horn the minute I got out of the car. This particular westbound train did something I haven't seen before- it stopped just east of the interlocking.

There was a reward for that stop, as it allowed the westbound Amtrak #281 to pass.

This train would terminate in downtown Buffalo maybe an hour (at most) after it passed me.

The rainy weather has its uses, like leaving large puddles to reflect the CSX locomotives as they pass.

The westbound CSX freight was a unit auto rack train.

About half an hour later, this eastbound CSX freight approached Attridge Road.

Like its westbound counterpart, the eastbound freight was an auto rack train.

Even as the 2nd auto rack train (seen here) headed off to the east, I could hear the horn of another westbound train in the distance.

The hopper behind the engines is a spacer, which CSX (and virtually all other RRs) use when handling ethanol.
