Railfanning Westfield NY Sept 2017 CSX NS Amtrak UP Lehigh Valley KCS CN CP


Westfield NY has a great railfanning place between the CSX and NS main lines to enjoy a day of trains. They have parking, picnic tables, and a porta potty in the forested area to the East.

Excellent views of the CSX line in the morning. NS is better in the afternoon.

I apologize for some rough video sometimes as I was trying to get a balance of video, but was often setup on the wrong track to the incoming freight. CSX really barrels through this section of track.

Found it interesting seeing long freights, but also many short freights as well. Also, there was an NS freight that made the ground shake quite noticeably, not sure what was loaded in them cars!!

For all you Heritage loco spotters, there is a Lehigh Valley unit at 15:50 of the video.

Thanks to the Bayview guys for showing me this spot. We had a great day.

Enjoy
