A train parked across the bridge in Linden?

Recommended Posts

I've seen a covered hopper train there for 3 weeks now. What's the deal? Same number & markings doesn't seem to move.

 

Did the loco assigned to it break down or was there a derailment somwhere along its length?

 

Very strange.

Those cars are stored by the Morristown and Erie on the SIRT. The cars are being stored there until the economy gets better. They have been there more than 3 weeks its more like sever months!

I'm assuming they are empty? What is the static & live load rating for that bridge? :eek::cool:

Cool. :tup:

 

It can't be good for them to be parked on a bridge for too long, no matter what the load rating. I have at least 6 photos of them at this point, and i'll get some more over the next week.
