July 21, 2004.
I spent this hot hazy afternoon east of the passenger station at Utica, New York watching and photographing trains on the old New York Central Water Level Route.
Utica was unusual because it retained a variety of its New York Central-era structures on a route largely denuded of traditional railroad buildings.
I made a point of include old Tower 30, which had still had Conrail sticker on its door. Without the tower in the picture, CSX AC6000CW 611 could be just about anywhere.
This is just one frame in a sequence. I think a previous image, with 611 slightly further back in the frame might be a more effective photo.
