The following weekend, I was back at Chili Junction again. Amtrak's  Empire Service was on time, or very close to it.

The 4th train was a westbound CSX intermodal.
 

 
The tail end of the eastbound intermodal (which was moving slowly) can be seen as the westbound intermodal passes.
 

 
i am going to miss the signal bridge at MP 382 when it's gone.

After a month away from Chili Junction, I returned last weekend. The reward was a slew of trains.  
 
An eastbound CSX mixed freight kicked off the visit:  
 

 
It had a BNSF leader:
 

 
it also went down the West Shore Bypass:
 

 
In fact, this mixed freight was the only train I saw on the West Shore while i was there:
