This past weekend was easily my favorite trip to Chili Junction so far. Why? My two favorite things to see there did happen- onc=e of them more than once!  
 
This is why Chili Jct lives up to its name- a westbound intermodal comes off the West Shore Sub:

Next up- a taxi came out to swap crews on this westbound CSX tank train.  
 

 
The train came off the siding slowly and then picked up speed. Now you can see why it's my 2nd favorite thing to see at MP 382.
 

 
Nice SD40-2 leading, too!

While I was fixated on the departing tank train, another westbound CSX intermodal came off the West Shore Sub and caught me by surprise. I did manage to capture it catching up to the tank train:
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
All photos in this post were taken by me Saturday 6/11/2016 in Riga, NY. This was only the 2nd time I've caught a CSX meet in Monroe County where both trains were going in the same direction. Strangely enough, each of them happened just west of Attridge Road.

This westbound CSX auto rack freight was 4th and final train to come off the West Shore Sub during this visit. The matched set of BNSF units looked very nice, IMO.

The switch to the West Shore Sub closed after the previous train cleared Attridge Road. the final sighting for this visit was a westbound CSX mixed freight on Track 2, which had 2 UP units leading:

One week later, both Scot and Ken were with me for parts of my visit to the Attridge Road crossing. Scot and I caught this westbound CSX intermodal on Track 1, thanks to alert from Ken... woh saw it at Depsatch!

Scot left right after the first train. Ken also gave me the heads up on the 2nd westbound CSX intermodal, which was probably Q019:
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
Ken arrived just in time to see a CSX hi-rail MOW heading east on Track 2:

This westbound CSX tank train was probably K635. An SD40-3 and a Norfolk Southern widecab made for interesting power.

The CSX hi-rail MOW truck returned, this time heading west on Track1. Amtrak's westbound #281 Empire Service over took it.
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 

 
The hi-rail truck did come off the rails at the Attridge Road crossing:

Yes, it was a meet. This eastbound CSX auto rack freight (also with an SD70MAC leading) rumbled east on Track 2 and then headed down the West Shore Sub:

The parade of SD70MACs leading continued, including this westbound CSX intermodal on Track 1:
