Nice shot of the L135 but those gas prices are painful to look at, aren't they ?!
 
Incidentally, I hear from intermodal brass that they are quite pleased with the running times of Q135/Q136 over the C&O.

Last month, I had quite the adventure in greater Buffalo. I'll start by sharing the action at Buffalo Creek Junction. This westbound manifest freight was the first CSX train I saw that day.

The power for the eastbound intermodal has emerged from underneath the Tifft Street bridge. This is a great location to catch CSX, NS, Amtrak and a couple of shortlines.

During the Buffalo trip, I met up with a fellow fan and he suggest a new location (for me) that I instantly liked: Bayview Road. This i another great location see both CSX and NS action. That being said, CSX is defintely the busier of the two Class 1s.  
 
A westbound CSX intermodal with a CN widecab for leading power arrived shortly after we did.

The westbound intermodal heads towards an old signal bridge that will apparently be replaced later this year.

Double stacks cross Bayview Road. That's my fellow railfan Brian next to the flashers.

The tail end of the eastbound CSX auto rack train has cleared Bayview Road. Brian and I stuck around for one NS freight and then headed back into the city.
