Two weeks after taking the previous set of photos, I got back to Chili Junction again. CSX was doing more track work there. A Herzog stone train was parked west of the signal bridge.  
 

 
Panel track was laying next to the active track,
 

 
Fresh stone had been laid along track 1 on either side of the Attridge crossing.

After the intermodal passed, the Herzog stone got under way and headed east.  
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
The stone train took the siding, too.

This eastbound CSX tank train sported a standard cab EMD as the training unit.  
 

 
It went down the West Shore Bypass.

And... finally... we've gotten to the end of the season at Chili Junction. The sun sets earlier now and is getting out of the position I like. Last weekend will be my last regular visit there for the year, although I may return when the signal bridges are removed.  
 
Two trains, including MOW, were parked east of the junction when I arrived.
 

 
This eastbound CSX tank train stayed on the Chicago Line. (They often take the West Shore Bypass when heading east.)
 

 
 
 

 
Meeting the parked trains:

The train also had an SD40-3:

Standing on the south side of Attridge Road worked better when this westbound CSX intermodal came off the West Shore Bypass:

The third and final westbound CSX intermodal came off the West Shore Bypass with a pleasant surprise:
 

 
 
 

 
Yep, Amtrak's westbound Empire Service arrived while the 3rd intermodal passed. if this is the last time I see anything under the western signal bridge at MP 382, I will be more than satisfied with this shot:
 

 
All photos in this post were taken by me Saturday 9/27/2014 in Riga, NY from the Attridge Road crossing. I had alot of fun at Chili Junction this year. The signal bridges will be missed next year... but I shall return.
