Rare Delmarva Mineral Freight Today
Author: cr2581

Coal trains are extremely rare on the Delmarva Peninsula as the lone generating station at Indian River operates on demand only. When stockpiles run low, trains arrive quickly. I managed to catch the fourth inbound load this morning and there is still one more to come.  The empties usually return two days later. All of this in a six week period since early March.

Enjoy !

NS power almost always runs through on unit trains (stone, coal, grain).  DCR crew generally gets on the train at Tasker siding (north of Porter). North of the canal.

That's a nicely composed picture.  The wall for Noble's Pond makes a nice border.
