Remarks & Notes 
On January 12, 2011, CSXT GP40-2 #6218 switches in Troy, NY during a snowstorm. Up until the 1950s, Troy was quite the railroad town, at one point hosting over 100 trains a day from the New York Central, Boston and Maine, Delaware and Hudson, and even the Rutland (via the B&M). The D&H ceased its Troy operations in 1963 and the B&M in 1971. The New York Central and its successors carried on, though only as far as their small yard in South Troy. Today, CSX visits the city three times a week with its local B761 (seen here). Though a far cry from Troy's former railroading glory, it's nice to see its railroading history carrying on in some fashion.
