This is shot from southern Virginia, not far from the VA/North Carolina Border. The train waiting on the other track (called a ‘siding’) is an empty coal train. Passing southbound by it is the empty Tropicana train. This unit train returns Tropicana refrigerator cars back to Florida to be loaded with orange juice and other perishable juices from Bradenton, Florida. The northbound then takes the loads up to Bergen, NJ. where is it trucked to the various grocery stores. They’ve been doing this since I was a kid.
