This is a picture I took with my drone of NYA off of Queens Avenue in Lindenhurst. I spent some time talking to the guys working the crossing and they were very nice and informative. It was awesome to see how they work, up close.

Last night 11/3-11/4 the RS60 was seen at Ronkonkoma with GP38-2 270 and MP15AC 156 at around 11:25PM with a BNSF Reefer, and a mixed consist of centerbeams and stone hoppers for BRT. Around 12:30AM the crew pulled into YA to run around its train and headed west around 1:00AM to drop off cars at BRT.

I caught this same train about 2:45 PM that afternoon in Farmingdale. The rear 17 gravel loads were spotted for Posillico. The middle 12 empty CDEX were spotted for loading at Coastal. The two Geeps then backed out of the DEF (heading west) to wait for the mainline switch to be thrown to head east. They followed an EB LIRR M7.
