Sleeping Giants by sullivan1985 Sleeping Giants by sullivan1985
A pair of CSX GEs on a short, muddy stub track at Point-No-Point wait for their next assignment of pulling lovely garbage out of the Garden State. Surprisingly, a bunch of stars are visible through the heavy light pollution from New York City, Jersey City and Newark.

CSX C40-8W 7672

Man I can't even see the tracks it's sitting on. At first I thought it was derelict and abandoned.

It might as well be. The track at Point-no-Point is in really bad shape. Then again, trains have only been doing about 5-10MPH on it for the last 30 or more years. No need to spend money to upgrade such low quality track. I would imagine that if a train derails, they just get a crane, re-rail it and off you go!

the weeds make it look like they are in line to be scrapped.

No scrapping for sure. This is one of the many garbage processing plants in NJ shared by NS and CSX. New Jersey garbage will be shipped out from here to points south by CSX. It's not a very pretty place.
