Dunkirk, New York

(map) The former Conrail Buffalo-Chicago now operated by CSX runs along the coast of Lake Erie through the town of Dunkirk, outside which is an excellent photographic overpass for the CSX line. The nearby Nickel Plate, now NS, line is a bit further South.

I took Kevin, Steve, Brian, and Laura down to the US for Kevin and Steve's first taste of American railfanning. We worked our way along the coast of Lake Erie all the way to North East, Pennsylvania, stopping at Angola, Dunkirk, and Westfield. Our total haul for the day was around 38 trains, including several that we saw without shooting as we travelled. BNSF's lone "vomit bonnet" led NS #310 through Angola, among other interesting catches.
