How Far Does Rolling Stock Go?

Recommended Posts

hello all

 

i wanted to post this for some time because i have not been able to find a reliable source of answer, How Far Does Rolling Stock Go? because when i used to live in the Bronx near the Market Line i used to see CSX Gensets pushing Union Pacific Reefers as shown in the video below by gregorygrice:

 

 

So yeah, does equipment have a limit on how far it goes? and also is the reefer in the video from the RailEx train? The train that carries produce from the west to chicago? i mean will those cars ever get returned to home territory, after travelling an approximate 3,500 miles? IMO i doubt that because most of the time they sit at Oak Point Yard without moving, sometimes for days at a time.

Most rolling stock is in the North American pool (USA, Canadian and Mexican Class 1's) for railroad owned rolling stock. Means any carrier can use it with payment sent to the home road for use of their car. Private cars most owned by leasing companies and shippers are used just to ship for that shipper. Best example of this is power plants or coal mines owning their own cars for service from a mine to a powerplant.

Wow, I had no clue those tracks were still in use. I remember seeing them when I would drive the Bx6.

There's always a daily trip that switches the line everyday at 220pm. I don't know if they still do that local or if they switched the schedule.

kind of ironic that this is only grade crossing in the city LOL

 

 

Maybe am wrong.

 

No, theres one at 88 street and 76 Avenue in Queens along the Montauk Line.

Here it is: https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ll=40.707332,-73.862237&spn=0.002859,0.006539&t=m&z=18&layer=c&cbll=40.70725,-73.862162&panoid=zNmLXMSVsuhqw2j9S2B3fA&cbp=12,284.13,,0,2.28
