This westbound ethanol train seems to be a regular on CSX on Saturday evenings. It is becoming quite familiar... almost like an old friend.

After the westbound ethanol train (seen here) departed, Chili Junction fell silent for over 90 minutes.

Two more trains approached around 8:30 PM- westbound Amtrak #281 and an eastbound ethanol train. They met in deepening twilight, just west of Attridge Road.

The eastbound ethanol train paused for Amtrak #283, resuming its own journey after the passenger train cleared the crossover west of Attridge Road.

The ethanol trains originate on CP in the Midwest. CSX brings them east to be unloaded. I've heard about some interesting foreign power on the ethanol trains... and in this case, two of the three EMDs providing power were Iowa, Chicago & Eastern units.

I thought about trying to intercept this train in Fairport... but the growing darkness convinced me to cancel the chase as these tank cars passed.

The sun was low in sky, so the eastbound CSX freight crossed Attridge Road in shadows.

The westbound freight's power has cleared Attrdige Road and is framed against the low sun.

Both of the eastbound freights I saw on that night had EMD standard cab units as trailing power. I wish I could've seen them on the return trip!
