Album Info:Chasing CSX X999-22 from Manville, NJ to Woodboorune, PA. The 56 Million Dollar Heat Exchanger was made in Wilkes-Barre, PA, transported by the Reading & Northern to Lehighton, PA, where it was turned over to Norfolk Southern and brought down to Bethlehem, PA and then down to Manville, NJ and then over CSX tracks down to Morrisville, PA via Woodbourne. This is considered a High & Wide movement, where all other trains are held until this particular train makes it down the line and the crews closely monitor the clearances of bridges and other obstacles and run at a slower speed. This move only happens a few times a year. This is Air Product's 100th Heat Exchanger - Made in the USA, and will be shipped over to Australia.
