Ithaca Central
Author: Soo715

Wondering if operations have settled into a regular pattern for WATCO's new ithaca Central, operating the ex-NS (ex-Lehigh Valley) secondary line from Sayre, PA up to Ithaca, NY and the salt mine on Cayuga Lake. I read somewhere that is is a daytime, probably Monday to Friday operation but I would like to get confirmation on that and a general sense of the operating pattern.

I'm guessing a crew will do a turn from Ithaca to Sayre and then maybe there is a separate turn from Ithaca up to the salt mine?  Any info appreciated.

General operations have been departing Ithaca around 9am south for Sayre, PA. Interchange with NS then head back north. After arrival in Ithaca continue north up to the Cargill Mine  Switch plant runaround train at Myers return to Ithaca for the day.
