So now that upstate NY received 30" of snow courtesy of Stella, it will be telling when NYSW gets around to plowing the Utica branch for its next use.

I think you will sooner see that snow melt than see NYSW plow between the forks and sangerfield. There just isn't the revenue to do it.

Probably no need to do so, the snow will be pretty well gone in a couple of weeks.

Hopefully the deep snow will melt slowly avoiding flooding and washouts.

Trust me, if they needed to run a revenue train up the line, they would plow it.
