I moved a few miles west to GB diamond. I was fully aware of an AAPRCO special coming through the area that day, which arrived late in the morning:
 

 
The train stopped at Lake Avenue, possibly for a crew change:
 

 
Meanwhile, westbound NS intermodal 23K stopped about a mile or so from the diamond:
 

 
After a wait of nearly 40 minutes, the AprCO headed east again in the early afternoon:

Heading back to Tifft Street, I found the tank train I'd seen at Lake Avenue was now stopped, awaiting to clearance to cross CP Draw. A short CSX mixed freight (or possibly a work train) joined it.
 

 
 
 

 
The two eastbound train were waiting for a westbound CSX unit tank train:

I also spent some time at Bison Yard:
 

 
This light engine movement was the only train activity I saw there:
 

 
Auto racks did not move, but they were unloaded:
 

 
NS widecabs on the former DL&W mainline:
 

 
Wider shots of the yard itself:
