The NYS&W services Utica, NY's Utica Club Brewery (a/k/a F.X.Matt Brewery & West End Brewery) off street trackage on Schuyler Street. The tracks run on Schuyler St approx 4/10th mile & are part of the Susquehanna's Utica-Binghamton line.

This brewery, founded in 1853, is the USA's second-oldest family-owned brewery. They produce Utica Club & Saranac as well as custom microbrews & soft drinks.

I happened upon the crew switching the brewery a few days ago.

1) Tying down a boxcar on the main before preparatory to switching.

2) Moving forward.

3) Clearing tracks of snow & ice.

6) "Let's hope the brewery opens the overhead door quickly"( they didn't as the crew had to wait near 1/2 hour).
