CSX Track Work to Affect Syracuse Station

Amtrak said the eastbound Lake Shore Limited (Chicago to New York), Maple Leaf (New York-Toronto) and Empire Service trains 281 and 284 (New York-Niagara Falls, New York) are subject to delay due to track work in Syracuse, New York.

The track work began on Aug. 28 and will continue through Sept. 14. CSX owns the tracks used by Amtrak in Syracuse.

Amtrak Lake Shore LimitedTrains may be delayed between 30 to 45 minutes and on some dates passengers will board at the New York State Fairgrounds three miles west of the station.

Passengers will be transported by a shuttle bus on those days.

The shuttles will operate on Sept. 11 and 12. Amtrak said that even if a train is delayed, the shuttle buses will leave the Syracuse station at the scheduled train departure time.

Those boarding in Syracuse are advised not to use the Amtrak train status information to determine what time to arrive at the station. Buses will depart at the time shown on the ticket.

Passengers traveling to Syracuse on Sept. 11 and 12 will detrain at the fairgrounds and ride a shuttle bus to the station.

If the shuttle bus is not trackside upon arrival of the train, passengers will be directed to remain onboard until the shuttle has arrived.

Checked baggage service to and from Syracuse will be suspended on Train 48 on both days.
