Moving Coal on The SNC

Glens Falls Cement stored 28 hoppers of coal on The Saratoga and North Creek Railroad this past winter.   The loaded hoppers are now on their way to Glens Falls, via Saratoga Springs, Fort Edward and the D&H's Glens Falls Branch.

Here Bradley Peterson Jr lines the switch for the main to run around to the head end and head south to Saratoga with 28 loads.


A toot toot from Engineer Mike Spiak and a friendly wave from Bradley Peterson Jr made the day as they make way for Saratoga .


Engineer Mike Spiak throttles SNC train SC5 through Spier Falls Road, such a great day to be in the Adirondacks.




The Adirondack Hammer Head are at it again, Mike Spiak doing a great job as the engineer as Bradley Peterson Jr does the waving. SNC 52 takes 28 loads for Saratoga at Mosher Road in Corinth



Sweetness at Sunnyside Gardens, SNC SC5 rumbles and a creaks into the Station track at Saratoga with 28 cars and the SNC 52 in charge.

Here's a flashback to the SNC moving the coal UP the branch this past February...




A cold day on the SNC southend as the day starts off with a alot of switching in Saratoga as the SNC 8524 gets permission from the CP dispatch to be lined to the Adirondack Branch seen here with GE ingestion moving northbound through mile 37 with 15 cars of coal


A cold day on the SNC southend as the day starts off with a alot of switching in Saratoga as the SNC 8524 gets permission from the CP dispatch to be lined to the Adirondack Branch as seen here at Daniels Road as the consist struggles to keep speed up as they come to a creeping crawl and a abrupt stall just north of Brams' Crossing and many other attempts were made but none were successful. Yet to be lucky i got this once in a life time rare move on the Adirondack Branch with freight service.
