We sighted it first at Wickham Marsh, in Port Kent; Essex Rd. (Rt. 22) Crossing in Essex, NY; Port Henry coming out of the station; and Ticonderoga at Montcalm's Landing. As a bonus we saw the local, D13 passing through the Ticonderoga station with a double head of GP20ECO units.

Port Henry station.
|One of my favorite storied spots, Montcalm's Landing with|
Fort Ticonderoga in the distance at 3:54 pm.
This was the jumping off point for the Delaware & Hudson's
Ticonderoga branch line, and interchange with the
D&H steamboat lines.
trail zealots gleefully insult and slander train enthusiasts because of our hobby.
Other news coming up is that Toys for Tots train this weekend. Here is the schedule which I am hoping to catch at a number of different locations, and as cell service holds up, look for me to live stream the action at Rouses Point.
