Mohawk, Adirondack & Northern ran a 76-car train up its Lyons Falls branch on Friday, April 24th. Behind Alcos Nos. 2453, 2456 & 805 were 4 bulkhead flats (consigned to 3B Timber, Boonville), a covered hopper (consigned to Bailey's Boonville Mill) and 71 tank cars to be stored north of Boonville.

This video covers the big train heading up Remsen Hill:
