I was unlucky enough today to catch the trash train heading south on the River Line at Teaneck. I have seen it before, and sometimes they have to sit and wait for a signal at CP7.
Today's train was especially stinky. Maybe due to the warm temps we have had over the past few days. It was bad enough that someone walking along Palisade ave (which parallels the railroad) made a comment to me. I explained to him that it was just the "garbage train".
Can someone give me an idea of where these trains originate, and what their destination is. I read the thread, and Kentucky was mentioned. I heard that a lot of that trash goes to the old Pennsylvania coal mines. Maybe some of it gets burned in power plants.
If I could know when to expect these stinkers coming through Teaneck, I could schedule my running in Votee Park for some other time, or go to the High School track instead.
