The work yard is run by the Mohawk, Adirondack, and Northern Railroad...

Nice RailRoad Pics, Ross.

Next time you're heading this way... lemme know... I'm about a 25 minute drive from Utica and would love to show you and Trish around. better yet.. plan a weekend visit. There's a railroad crossing about 3/4 miles from my house. :tup

I was fit to be tied tonight... around 4:30 the sky lit up like a big batch of cotton candy, and I was in the car with no camera!!! I see you got some of it there in your picture, so Utica must have been the same. I wish you had alerted me to the trip, as I might have been able to slip out today to go with ya. Next time.

Those are awesome shots hun! Looks like you had a good couple days chasing trains! :happy Number 7 and 8 are my favorites... especially 8, it looks like the train is going to ride right out of the photo :) ...and you've pulled out some great color in some of those pictures!!
