NYC - Claverack Creek Bridge

Photos 

IMG_1813 | by Russ Nelson

Hudson and Chatham Branch of the New York Central, just east of the current end of tracks. Presumably operated by CSX now. There's an industrial spur just west of here, in Greenport Center, but most people probably think of it as Hudson, NY. This remnant of the main line is used as a switching track for the industrial. The Bing aerial shows cars sitting on it.
