Downtown Utica's Railroad Tracks & Facilities

Utica was once Upstate's largest railroad freight terminal. Today they consists of the Very Active East-West CSX & Amtrak Mainline, and the tracks of the Mohawk, Adirondack and Northern Railroad. View illustration of Utica's Railroad Interchange area, or in this Google Map view.
