Train XN-2

Subject

Diesel Freight Locomotive

Description

The aforementioned DeWitt yard and its approaches will be the subject of the next twenty photographs, an emphasis in keeping with the importance of this colossus of freight classification. Train XN-2 from Buffalo is shown here at Thompson Road on the Lake Line, about one mile from the west end of DeWitt. Tracks are numbered 7-3-4-8 and, as might be inferred, operation is left-handed. Formerly the freight belt, this route around the north edge of Syracuse now carries all traffic with the sale to the state in 1961 of the passenger line through the downtown area.
