Caught them out of Brockport west with FRR 1802 long hood forward and two ethanol loads for CSX.

Nice shots but incorrect information. Had those been ethanol cars, an idler would have been placed between the locomotive and the hazardous cars. The FRRR runs a tight operation and would not make such a blatant violation. A company source confirmed that neither car had anything to do with ethanol.

Thanks! I'll change that! Any idea what the heck they may be hauling? Could they be coming out of the Brockport storage line?

They appear to be switching Sunnking.

Sunnking isn't a shipper that I'm aware of (they're an electronics recycler / reseller). They lease a portion of the old Owens-Illinois warehouse.

The RR customer there is a cold storage (Allied).
