  • This crated equipment is part of a Rolls-Royce 240,000-pound shipment of generation equipment that is being shipped by railroad. It was being loaded this morning to ship Thursday. It is the first rail shipment in 40 years to go out of Mount Vernon. The three flatbed rail cars will go to Newark enroute to St. Louis, Mo., then by the Union Pacific Railroad to the Port of Houston, Texas. The equipment will go by ship to a customer in a oil field off of the coast of Brazil. Rail shipment will save $260,000 rather than transport by trucks over roads. More shipments by rail are being planned. style=
