Ear to the Ground

Last evening, a reader reported that a large boulder had fallen onto the railroad tracks somewhere around Germantown, disabling the train ahead of the one in which he was traveling and causing his train to be 90 minutes late arriving in Hudson. 

When Amtrak and the Department of Transportation deemed it necessary to clad the escarpment in Hudson with shotcrete, the fear was there might be a plan to apply shotcrete to the rock face all along the scenic railroad corridor between New York City and Albany. This incident may trigger such action.
