Nice shot! Like the winter scene. How many cars did she have in tow? Are there any grades on that branch which could be a challenge to a single unit with a heavy train?

The train had about a dozen cars when it got to Franklin. I am only speaking from speculation, but I think the line for the most part is fairly level. It follows Sugar Creek almost the entire way to Franklin from there it follow the Allegheny River up to Oil City. It looked as if there is some grade around the old refineries just north of OC, but we caught them there as well and with 4 cars in tow and operating at 5mph on the bad track the unit was nothing but a bit above idle.

Late 2011 - November or December, on a Friday morning, I caught the LA&L returning empty hopper (correction) cars from Genesee Junction to Rochester & Southern's Brooks Ave. yard.  Heading back to home rails at Beahan Road:

Ah, very nice bob you got the 418....  
 
 
 
 
 
 On a side note the 428 is lacking side number and a road name. Not sure if this is just an interchange rule or not but I am surprised the LAL doesn't have stencil on the cab side

Good point, VTM. I didn't know the LA&L handled salt traffic. The hoppers probably came from Barilla, King Kole Bean or ADM.

A thousand pardons.  By the time I arrived at Beahan Rd, the train was deep in the yard.  I saw hoppers, made a rash assumption that they were salt cars.
Where would the empties from Barilla go from Brooks Ave, to Silver Springs?

If I'd a known you were on board, VTM, I'd a paid closer attention.  Were you on this run?  Guess the date.

LOL.......judging by the types of cars surrounding, I would say 1973.
 
I'm sure others can narrow down the further details.

Yes, the R&S would take the hoppers to Silver Springs for interchange with NS.

Nice job, Mike. I noticed those strings of hoppers at Avon on Friday and wondered if they were to be dropped off at Barilla or taken back to Chili. Now I know, so thank you for sharing the shots.

I was out and about taking a short drive on Tuesday morning, August 21st and wound up heading South toward Avon. As soon as got to the stop sign at Main St by the crossing, here came the morning's train heading North.

I was going to grab a shot at the Martin Road crossing, but there was a fellow already set up there...........so I didn't want to get in his way. Instead, I headed to Jefferson Road and grabbed this shot approaching the road crossing.

Finally, I went to East River Rd near the river bridge and got these coming and going shots. All photos were taken by myself 8/21/12.
