CR 5618 west Trailvan 10181995

A westbound TV train rolls past the Syracuse Amtrak station with 62 trailer flats. I didn't have my scanner with me most of the time I was at driving school, so did not get the symbol, but looking at the UPS trailers right behind the power, I'd venture this is either TVLA or TV 79, both of which went to the Santa Fe. C40-8 6083 is the trailing unit.
