Just west of Gershow

The siding just west of Gershow a.k.a. "Synergy Gas" had track work done in the week right before the 4th, looks like it might be being re-activated. Is the propane company down there going to be taking loads?

It no longer goes into the gas place. It was cut and runs along the main. Was going to. Go to winter bros but never happened. Maybe it is going to happen now?

Additional switch for Gershow. They bought the property.

Thank You! Will it also take beat up gondolas like the current siding, or is Gershow going to load something new?

They curved the switch back towards Synergy which was built like 20 years ago but finally sees active service. So all three sidings in Medford are active. Medford Team, former Synergy(MP 55), and Gershow into actual facility. Like stated earlier Gershow has cleared the property east of their facility. A sump it looks like is being built towards Peconic Ave, but the land is cleared all the way north to the LIRR mainline. In 2006 they realigned the the Synergy switch west towards Winter Bros waste, but that costumer never panned out. There was 4 cars on spot on new Gershow siding west of their property.
