37T is a new symbol to me.  Obviously it's a intermodal stack train.  Can you tell us it's schedule
and route?  Thanks.

Actually not a stack train; it's the Allentown-Buffalo merchandise freight... Runs with a lot of intermodal stuff in the car consist since they cut 205/206 back from Mechanicville to Buffalo last summer (don't know if it has anything to do with that, but the change took place about that time)...

At Binghamton, 37T often picks up double stack containers that the K82 turn job out of Taylor Yard (Scranton) brings to Binghamton and then hauls them to Buffalo. Plus 37T also handles some international double stack traffic out of New Jersey that goes to CP at Buffalo, I believe. And most days 22K/23K Chicago-Ayer trains handle the Mechanicville double stack traffic that 206/205 used to handle. On account of the prohibition of double stacked domestic containers through Hoosac Tunnel, 22K's top level of stacks are often filleted at Mechanicville while 23K is conversely toupéed. However there were a couple of days in the past week or so where 206 showed up in Binghamton on its way to Mechanicville. And then an I3K would be called in place of 205 to take Mechanicville containers west.

Do you know anything about symbol 21K? I saw one of those last October... I'm assuming it's another 205 in disguise...

Don't know - I've not heard of a 21K, at least operating around Binghamton. Where did you see this?

I found one last October... CP AC4400CW leading a dead-in-tow NS Dash-9... Short consist of Hunt/EMP/Hub stacks behind them... Very definitely said 21K, you can hear him calling the signal in one of my videos...
