Re: P941 Amtrak Equipment Move By Fonda NY #p941 #amtrak

Charlie Railscan
 

I heard CSX P941 with AMTK 87 now in the lead returning EB by Fonda NY at approx 0145 ET Thursday. I didn't see the train account of dense fog but 87 had been trailing when it went West through Fonda approx 5 hours earlier. There was a conductor aboard acknowledging signals called by the engineer as they would on a revenue passenger train. NC reviewed their move on to the Amtrak Hudson Line at CP-169. Anyone know what the purpose of this trip was? 

Thanks,

Charlie

CSX MoW Work On The Mohawk Sub #mow #mohawksub #ny

Charlie Railscan
 

I've been watching CSX MoW crews working along the East end of the Mohawk Sub in Upstate NY for the past month or so. The MoW crews are using AAR channel 45 160.785 MHz to talk amongst themselves and to the CSX supervisor, the CSX supervisor speaks to approaching trains on the road channel AAR 46 160.800 MHz and to the NC Dispatcher on AAR channel 52 160.890 MHz. The use of AAR channels 45 and 46 which are only 15 KHz apart can cause some bleed over between the two channels on certain radios or scanners when the crews are working nearby.

The work train with CSXT AC44CW 521 in YN2 paint with several material storage cars (one still in Conrail paint) and the 'circus style' MoW flat cars that the several dozen CSX MoW 'critters' has been tied down in Amsteram Yard between CP-173 and QC-174. As of Saturday evening 10/24 many of the MoW critters were parked along side the empty flats, perhaps soon to be loaded and depart for their next assignment. Several image previews of the MoW train parked in Amsterdam NY are attached.
