A Northbound passes by Hudson near the site of the former Hudson Yard. 

  • The little cement foundation was off to the side of the track was supposed to be for a hopper car unloader. 
  • It was for bulk unloading of something like salt or sand of cement ... forgot what one. 
  • The foundation was built, but nothing else as the plan fell through.
  • It was not for unloading coal or ashes from steam locomotives as some people have thought.
