The end is near as an SD60I and C40-8W roll a westbound stack train into the afternoon sun past CP 293. The track to the right is the connection to the NYSW, once the DLW Syracuse Branch. That line passed under the old NYC here, eventually reaching Oswego. The Willis Av overpass gives a commanding view of the Syracuse skyline behind the train. The NYC passenger line that went downtown-part of that line is now I 690-also diverged here, near the curve the train is rounding, in the distance.
