Lazy Sunday on the Mohawk
Author: train1275

A beautiful Sunday June 9, 2019 in Upstate New York along the Mohawk River.

1. First stop is Rotterdam Junction and Pan Am finally has one of those ex CSX GE's painted so it doesn't look like a total piece of junk. Pan Am 7552 in blue with the 7727.

2. Over on CSX is CSX 3435, 40, 5109 leading an eastbound at Lower Greg Road and

3. Going away heading for Selkirk.

Then over to Lock 10 at Cranesville just east of Amsterdam.

4. A boat comes up river through the 15 ft lift lock.

5. The Lake Shore Limited, Train 48 pops into view as the boat has left the lock basin.

6. A broader view of 48 and the river. Power today is the 122 and 81.

13. Calling it quits for the day, we find the CSX 3224 again, now crossing Lower Gregg Road in Rotterdam Junction, now on the south side of the river.

The blue and yellow of that piling in photo #12 is a close match of the color of the CSX locomotive.
