What a video. You hit the trifecta.
The station appears to be at the summit of the grade. Is that true? This could be my favorite train spotting location if I lived in the area. 😍

Thank You! Well its quite smooth profile at this place. The first train with empty hoppers was rolling with a very low power because second train was blocking his way. When suddenly the black smoke was coming out from the engines of the first train it was clear that the track for him was released and the engineer gave some power to speed up a little bit :)
Yes, good place for railfaning. This is the main freight line. Only bad thing that the highway is near - noise from the automotive transport was very load.

Those first two diesels deserve the title of "Honorary Steam Locomotives." if I recall correctly, those are the older, Russian built units without Caterpillar engines like the newer units.

Looking forward to more visits in the fall when the leaves have turned. I'll trade traffic noise for lots of rail traffic.

Yes, the first one called 2M62K is with russian engines manufactured by Kolomna factory.
Second one called 2M62UM is with CAT 3512B engines.
Third one shunting locomotive TEM TMH is also with CAT 3512B :)

Autumn colors are starting to show. :)
Oh yes. Still need to wait for one-two weeks and it will be completely covered in Autumn (gold) colors :) but bad thing is the conflict situation between Belarus and Lithuania, if you heard about it :-( It can end up with a complete decrease of Belarusian cargo export through the sea port of Lithuania, transferring the cargo export through Russia. But most likely it is a propaganda and nothing will happen, I hope.
