Remarks & Notes 
"Hunts Point Market Train Sidewalk-Running in the Bronx" The daily CSX Hunts Point Market Local shoves east through the sidewalk of Sal's Scrap Metal just after splitting from the Northeast Corridor. This is one of 3 busy industries that the train must pass through in order to get to the line's only customer, the Hunts Point Cooperative Market. What's unique about this line is that when train enters the branch, it must hold to allow workers to clear the tracks of any scrap debris and scrap handling equipment before proceeding down the rest of the line. The second the train clears, the scrappers continue their work until the train comes back out again. Today the train stretches just about the whole length of the Market Branch with a uniformed train of Union Pacific "Chilled Express" reefers loaded with perishables. Be sure tot click on the location link for more photos of the branch!
