Last minute holiday shoppers had to pause as the LA&L crossed Jefferson Road near Southtown Plaza in Henrietta:  
 

 
Crossing the Genesee River in Brighton:  
 

 
 
 

 
The LA&L has entered the R*S at Genesee unction in Chili, and is prpearing to shove all 15 cars up the line for interchange:
 

 
The LA&kl drops off the cars at the R&S Brooks Avenue Yard in Chili:
 

 
The LA&l shuffles cars from the R&S and CSX at Gensee Junction in Chili, while an eastbound CSX intermodal whizzes past:
 

 
Departing Genesee Junction- where else could I catch a pair of matched C425s so easily?
