I had a family errand to run over on the east side of town which gave me a free hour to do some railfanning. It turned out to be a pretty productive hour, with NS, CSX and Canton action afoot.
My next stop was Penn Mary Yard, the Canton’s base of operations. I caught one of their GP8s working a cut of cars.
I then headed up to Boston Street, which is a bit of a choke point with NS, CSX and Canton using the numerous tracks there.
I picked a good time to show up, with the Canton 1501 to do some work at the various industries.
The crew of 1501 had to clear up so that the Canton interchange job could return from Bayview.
In the distance, above, you can see yet another train showing up: a loaded CSX coal train bound for Consol Coal.
