Just a few days before Xmas, I gave myself the gift of chasing the LA&L. it was a frosty dawn at the yard in Lakeville:

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?
