Coal train in Rochester...

Post by Ironhorse27 » Mon Jul 01, 2019 8:24 pm

This afternoon, I believe I saw a CSX coal train headed eastbound. The part of the train I saw was all CSX hoppers. Anyone have any idea where this train was going? I thought there was no coal traffic running on this particular line.

I also saw an eastbound coal train on CSX going through Dunkirk a few days ago. I couldn't even guess but maybe going to another state?

Yesterday, Sunday July 4, around 7:30 am I heard distant whistle, like the CSX on the Lockport branch onto the Somerset line. Later in the day, I was in Somerset and the chimney was silent. I don't know how long it takes to turn over deliveries (if it had gone to the plant), or if it had just been working local industry in Lower Town..
