Train passing over head on Route 9H

On my way  from Albany NY I was on Route 9H when this train was passing by.  Although this was what I would call a cargo train I was still fascinated by it.  I like to see what type of cargo is being hauled.

We might not give it much thought however trains transport many of the items needed to keep industries running.

Did you know hauling cargo by rail is encouraged?

I was commenting on your post on fire safety and the photo caught my eye. I have always wanted to catch one of these trains and see what it is like to ride the rails...one of them dreams from TV I guess.

Jennifer - I'm smiling at Gary's comment about dreaming of riding the rails!  I know it is supposed to be one of those guy dreams, but I've always had that dream too!

Those are hopper cars. They are usually used for hauling coal, ore, rock ballast, grain, etc. Those are CSX Transportation tracks out by 9H, which end right there at Claverack. Claverack has a lot of cattle and orchards, so those hopper cars could be carrying something related to them, such as grain for the cattle or fertilizer for the orchards. I think there also are some coal mines there in eastern New York.

I remember hopping trains when I was a kid. We would hop one and ride it to the next town and catch another train coming back. The world looks different from a train...
