NYS&W, Utica Branch, Paris Hill, NY
Author: ut-1

This video focuses on New York, Susquehanna & Western's UT-1 ascent up Paris Hill's 1.8% grade today and, also, summit crested, passing through countryside in Waterville, NY.

At 21 cars, this is probably the biggest train of the year on the branch.

NYS&W GP40 No. 3040 is up front while CSX leaser No. 9027, a C40-9W, provides a boost from the rear of the freight.

The train is bound for Sangerfield, 23 miles south of Utica.

Nice coverage, John.  That scene at Durant Farms sure reminds me of my youth back there in Herkimer County.  BTW I had a stroke a little over a week ago and it really messed up my memory (brain type).  I hoope I got your name right.

Thanks Jim! Hope you're on the mend.

It'll be cheaper to M/U those motors together in use just one crew.

The 6-axle is not allowed on the customer sidings in Sangerfield. My guess is that keeping 9027 on the end helps keep it out of the way when the switching occurs. They switched over 6 hours there yesterday, the extra crewman comes in handy then as well.
