Finally! It's that time of year again- the days are long enough to allow for some quality time at Chili Junction in the late afternoon/early evening. I was there for the first time this year just a few days ago. It's time to begin a new thread Chili Jct, and I'll update it until my trips there end in September.

A lengthy gap passed between the first train and the next arrival. In the mean time, I amused myself by checking out the new CSX "crew lounge" next to the ROW:

I really liked the standard cab Dash 8 leading this westbound CSX intermodal on Track 1::

It pulled off the Rochester Sub east of the Attridge Road crossing and went down the West Shore Sub:
