From the looks of it, seems like it's part of the energy boom taking place in the US right now and I'm thinking since the train was headed south on the River Line, maybe going to a refinery or oil/gas field south of New York?

Thanks Rich
I work in a coal fired power plant and we have small boilers like that which are used to make steam to assist the main 2 boilers in unit start ups.

Not sure on the big pipes. I wouldn't think those pipes have anything to do with boilers. Almost look like the big culverts that are being installed now in place of small bridges.
