Remarks & Notes 
A former Conrail SD40-2 leads the CSX local that serves the ADM grain mill in Hudson, NY EB across the Hudson River with 30 grain loads. The local will turn south at CP-SM at the east end of the bridge and head down the connector to Amtrak's Hudson Line. This is one of only 2 freights left running on the former NYC Water Level Route on the east side of the Hudson River. The train is on the 5,255 ft Alfred H. Smith Memorial Bridge, CSX's gateway to New England. Completed in 1924 as part of New York Central's Castleton Cut-off Project to bypass the steep West Albany Hill, the project included the construction of the original Selkirk Yard. The bridge has 25 towers with a Pennsylvania through truss center span. On the north side of the CSX bridge is the 5,369 ft long NYS Thruway Berkshire Spur bridge opened in 1958.
