I got back to my old stomping grounds for Thanksgiving by visiting family in the Southern Tier region. This included a bit of time trackside, as well. After missing NS 309 in the Canisteo River valley, I caught eastbound counterpart NS 301 at Philo Road:

You're welcome! Agreed about, Saure, too. I can remember the final years of LV and the early years of CR in Sayre, when it was a busy place.  
 
On the 2nd day of Christmas, NS sent 3 eastbound trains over the Southern Tier mainline. I caught 2 of them.
 
The first NS freight was auto rack freight 28N at Lowman Crossing Road in Wellsburg:
 

 
 
 

 
The second NS freight was intermodal 206 at the State Route 282 overpass in Tioga:
 

 
A complete slide show of both trains:

The following day was quite the adventure! After spending time with the NS local H85 and the B&H (as seen here. I headed east to.... Sayre, PA.  
 
 
NS H12 was idling next to he Original Italian Grille (the old LV freight house), waiting for permission to enter the Southern Tier Mainline:
 

 
 
 

 
However, NS 23K (with a nice BNSF leader) had to clear the interlocking in Waverly, NY first:
 

 
 
 

 
After the intermodal passed, NS H12 was cleared to enter the TIer at Wavelry and head west:
 

 
Finally, NS local H10 serviced Anchor Glass in Elmira, NY late in the day:

All photos in this post and the link were taken by me Wednesday 12/28/2016 in Steuben County, NY. All in all, last year was a good one to chase NS. I hope 2017 is even better!
