That westbound CSX auto rack train was not moving very fast, so I easily drove ahead of it and set up at Chili Junction itself:
 

 
 
 

 
Note the approaching eastbound train in the distance as the westbound auto rack freight crossed Attridge Road:
 

 
The westbound auto rack freight shifted from Track 2 to Track 1 to get round the appraoching eastbound train.

There was also an idling unit tank train sitting on the siding east of the junction. The next westbound CSX freight passed it on the Chicago Line:
 

 
This westbound CSX intermodal had ALOT of power:

The next westbound CSX freight also came off the West Shore bypass, too.

After the 3 westbound trains departed, the eastbound train got under way again... and moved over from Track 2 to Track 1 as it headed off towards Rochester.  
 

 
 
 

 
A Genset trailed in the power mix:
 

 
The eastbound mixed freight did pass the idling tank train:

Two weeks later. murky skies and thunder were back again... but that didn't stop me from catching some Labor Day weekend action.
 
I have to hand it to see CSX- they are still quite willing to put SD40-2s on their road freights. In this instance, they handled westbound auto racks.

This was the only time I have ever seen Amtrak's Lake Shore Limited at Chili Junction. The train was very late- seen here after 5 PM EDT.

The fourth sighting was an eastbound CSX unit hopper train:
 

 
 
 

 
 
 
 

 
The covered hoppers pass a string of cola hoppers east of the junction:

Nice mix of photos......pretty neat seeing standard-cab power on the point in this world of wide-cabs on the Class 1 roads.

Thanx, Charlie. I agree on the standard cabs. For all the jokes that are heaped on CSX, I give them major props for letting older SDs and even Geeps lead their road freights.  
 
My first visit to Chili Junction this month began with Amtrak's westbound Empire Service.

Eastbound CSX intermodal freight #2 made a slow approach to the signal bridge west of Attridge Road:
 

 
...and the stopped:
 

 
CSX sent out this MOW truck to investigate, too:

Apparently there was no problem with the eastbound intermodal because it resumed its journey after the westbound passed.
 

 
The eastbound moved over from Track 1 to Track 2...
 

 
...and went down the West Shore Bypass.
