Railroad cars headed south, to return North with paper products.

All of the cars in this train are owned by Tropicana Products. Going north in this photo, they are loaded with 5,000 to 6,0000 tons of juice products loaded in Brandenton, Florida. Each day a train like this travels to northern New Jersey, where the products are distributed for the entire New York metropolitan area. Even with the problems of the private rail system, this is vastly more efficient and safe than highway transportation.

The newest thing is this photo are the leaves, by far. The tree is old, the building is nearly beyond recognition. The bridge is likely at least 80 years old, if not more. The railroad engines were both built in the late 60's, along with the freight cars they are pulling.
