This shot alone made the trip to Buffalo Creek Junction worthwhile- eastbound CSX (foreground), Buffalo Southern (middle) and Norfolk Southern (background) trains all departed Buffalo Creek Junction at the same time, heading westbound.

I ended the day at the Bayview Road crossing, which features the CSX Chciago Line (3 tracks) and NS's ex-NKP mainline (1 track). On this occasion, the action belonged exclsuive to CSX... including this eastbound intermodal freight.

One evening last month proved to be a challenge for CSX. According to a fellow railfan, Q626 went into emergency in Bergen and managed to crawl eastward to about MP 373, which is down town Rochester. As a result, trains backed up on the Chicago Line. When I arrived at Attridge Road, one train was parked east of Chili Junction, while another wound up sitting about 1/2 mile west of the interlocking.

CSX did make effective use of the West Shore Bypass to route trains around the bottle neck, including the westbound intermodal.

With the westbound intermodal cleared, the stack train sitting west of the interlocking got under way and headed down the West Shore Bypass.

An extbound CSX auto rack train also utilized the West Shore Bypass to get around the stalled Q626.

My final sighting for the evening was another eastbound stack train. This one stayed on the Chicago Line because CSX had apparnetly cleared out the stopped trains east of Chili Ju7nction.

The following weekend was less chaotic for CSX at Chili Junction. The parade of trains continued, so I was happy. My first sighting was an intermodal train that went down the West Shore Bypass.

This eastbound CSX unit hopper train was something I hadn't seen before.
