If anyone knows, please let me know as it's got me curious everytime I see it. Thx in advance.

The CSX Oakpoint connector, it replaced the port Morris branch at Melrose.
It is a freight only yard lead.
controlled by oak point yard master.
If Conductors are in charge, why are they promoted to be Engineer???

Lol... It was kinda hard to get a pic if I didn't know the name of what I was asking about... And I couldn't get a pic from the Park Ave Bridge itself...

Since the purpose of this thread is achieved, can a moderator please move this thread to the proper forum and then close it?
