So in my work travels, I noticed a big ugly mulberry tree fell across the tracks in Harrington Park, NJ. Didn't appear to do any damage to the tracks, and I'm assuming a CSX mow crew came by and cut it up (as opposed to the town cutting it up) because they just cleared the tracks and left the logs and branches there. (still a mess there several days later) Here's where it gets interesting though. The tree must have came over in that windstorm we had a week or so ago on a Wednesday overnight. And this was a good size tree trunk. If it came over in the middle of the night, it's a good thing a train wasn't nearby or this could've been a disaster. I'm assuming what saved this potential disaster was the fact that the tree fell by the crossing right by the HP police station, so they must've heard it fall and then called CSX. If not, then there is no way a train would've been able to stop in time. Not at the rate of speed they go thru that area.
