Another Subway Car Barge Sets Sail

 dsc_3414a.jpg

A barge full of subway cars departed New York City today, likely destined for a spot about 10 miles off the coast of either Maryland or New Jersey. The barge is loaded on the Harlem River, adjacent to the 207 Street subway yard. It then travels up to the Harlem River Ship Canal, passing under a raised Broadway Bridge and a swung open Inwood Movable Bridge. After passing under the George Washington Bridge, the subway cars continue down the Hudson River and out into New York Bay.
