Remarks & Notes 
CSX Local B761 fights through some brush after dropping a couple open hoppers on the American Rock Salt track in Troy, NY. For many years, CSX delivered road salt using this track, however trucks have been delivering the salt for at least a year now. Recently, CSX has been dropping open hoppers here that have then been loaded with dirt (Im unsure as to whether this dirt is a part of cleanup at the American Rock Salt site, whether its from nearby construction, etc.). This has brought a little life back to this otherwise dormant track, which has obviously not seen much attention from MOW forces. Through the 1950s, Troy hosted four different railroads (the New York Central, the Boston and Maine, the Delaware and Hudson, and the Rutland), but today only the former New York Central line to South Troy remains as CSX's Troy Industrial Track. Currently, the only other customer left in Troy is K C Refrigeration, which typically receives one or two boxcars per week.
