Sounds like the lot was not designed for loaded trucks. I hope whoever owns the lot gets to hold the truck ransom until the company pays up for repairs - apparently they had no business driving through there.

Wonder if the lot had Load Limit signs posted at the entry/exit points,Company and Driver are on the hook if
the Load Limit signs were ignored.

With CSX in "Fire Sale" mode,Would the NYC or NY State,buy the freight trackage from Fremont to Oak point and turn it over to NY&A to operate?
Or would P&W(G&W) take over all CSX freight rights in the NYC metro area?

Is Fremont just another name for Fresh Pond? Some sort of division post or timetable station location?

Fremont was a tower on the NY Connecting RR(the Hellgate route)that was manned by NH RR operators, was an interlocking and interchange point
to the LIRR. The ROIW is elevated above the LIRR and NYCTA subway tracks. PC abandoned this tower before CR's creation.
Fresh Pond is a station/yard office on LIRR's lower Montauk Branch,between LI City and Jamaica.
Fremont is used as a boundary point between CSX and NY&A ,CSX runs from Oak Point Yard to Fremont to interchange cars with NY&A.
NY&A runs to Bay Ridge to interchange with the PANYNJ's NJNY RR a switching shortline in Bay Ridge and Greenville NJ and runs the last
Carfloat operation across the Harbor in NYC area. There's a rarely used interchange to the South Brooklyn RY,a part of the NYCTA Subway system.

Fremont is considered to be "upstairs" and Fresh Pond is considered "downstairs" due to the elevation change between the 2 ROWs.

AT certain times at Fremont the RR that ran and switched Bay Ridge yard was shared between NH/PC/CR and LIRR,that changed with CR's
breakup and LIRR/MTA contracting out the freight service on LIRR.
This is a "Cliff notes" history of this area.
