Anybody know why they are tearing up the tracks in Sherburne at the railroad crossing? Hopefully it's just for maintenance or repair.

The video opens with No. 3040 taking four hoppers southbound on Schuyler Street and follows with captures in Chadwicks, Sauquoit, Paris Station, Waterville and, a few hours later, back in the Utica area on former NYO&W Utica Division tracks in New Hartford.

"not 100% sure they might be putting new crossing there"

You're correct, I drove through Sherburne today and they have a brand new concrete railroad crossing.
That's got to be a positive sign.
