Riding CSX Rails
Amtrak’s Autumn Excursion travelled along CSX freight lines west of the Hudson River. In addition to some magnificent scenery in the Hudson Valley the trip gave a look at some of the rail infrastructure in the area. In the Oak Island and Croxton Yard intermodal hubs large numbers of containers were stacked multiple stories high. In Jersey City, the Meadowlands, and West New York there are many rail lines never seen from the NJ Turnpike or local roads, and up along the Hudson a number of lengthy freight trains were passed.
