The Loaded CSX Rail Train reportedly came out of Rochester, NY and afterwards
departed Selkirk Yard on Saturday, February 28 at approx. 0115 HRS. It arrived
Oakpoint Yard in The Bronx, NYC at approx 0730 HRS, on that day. Keep in mind
that in order to reach NYC, the train did clear Metro North's third rail from
Croton south. From that time The Oakpoint Link was prepared for welded rail
installation in the near future, between Oak Tower, adjacent to Amtrak's Hell
Gate Line, running through Harlem River Yard, which services The NY Post (Paper
Rolls), Waste Management (Trash), and ELS (Trash). The work ran underneath The
RFK bridge, and Willis Avenue bridges (which is under a approx. 5yr
reconstruction by Kiewit Construction and Weeks) before ending just shy of
Lincoln Avenue, where
The Oakpoint Link starts to hover over The Harlem River to Metro North's
Highbridge Yard.
On Friday THE 13TH, The train departed Oakpoint at approx. 0215 HRS, got on
Metro North at Highbridge around 0300, and tied down at Croton West Yard. Last
nite, it was recrewed, and arrived Selkirk at 0500 HRS.
This train is bound for Benning Yard in Washington DC, MP QL 134.
It is 39 cars long INCLUDING CSX grey caboose 904106, (which has graffiti on
it-NOT FROM NYC-plenty of seating and pot belly stove) green Boxcar/Tool car BO
482831, a couple of track equipment cars with Chessie System markings, and the
rest CSX style small gondolas with the ends and very ends taken off. A VERY
INTERESTING train indeed
