Train derailed

Photo by Jason Kaplan Around 3:15 p.m. on Tuesday, a CSX freight train carrying hazardous materials struck a forklift and derailed in New Windsor near Walsh Avenue and River Road. By Wednesday morning, the engine had already been moved back on the tracks, but RJ Corman Railroad Group continued to clear the rest of the derailment. They used a bulldozer and crane to remove a shipping container from the tracks and turn it right side up.

The local kids took advantage of the extra day off, Friday, by hitting the slope at Storm King Golf Club. Some rode traditional sleds while others used snow boards to speed their way to the bottom.

Trees cleared for construction

Photo by Jason Kaplan A large area of trees, on Forge Hill Road near the bridge, have been cleared to make way for a water filtration plant for New Windsor’s new wells. The project is in response to the eventual shut-down of the New York City Aqueduct. The construction site is along the Moodna Creek, which can be seen in the background.
