And now for the grand finale- I couldn't make this up! A westbound CSX intermodal on Track 1 meets an eastbound CSX tank train (with a BNSF leader) on Track 2 just west of Attrdige Road:

All photos in this post were taken by me Sat 9/25/2015 at MP 382 in Riga, NY. This has been a great year to visit Chili Junction. The length of day and the angle of sun are not to my liking most of fall and winter. I don't expect to visit Chlii Junction again on a regular basis till next March. Hopefully, y'all are enjoying the pics from this season.

Great photos Matt. Congrats on catching that meet - good timing and a little luck goes a long way.
 
Would you know the approximate daily train frequency at Chili Junction?

Thank you sir! A burst photography setting on my camera also helps.  
 
CSX runs 50+ trains per day through Chili Junction. Amtrak also runs 8 trains per day through there. It's busy!
