I'm sure of it as I have photos of both cuts of cars, and the car numbers, load patterns, tarp covers and order of cars are the same. Do any of you know what's going on? For a railroad operating out of such a congested yard, it seems...strange.


Probably bad ordered

All five cars? And if so, why didn't they transload the cargo?

If the cars are bad ordered,they cannot move to a transload point untill repaired.
NY&A has to wait for the OK to repair the cars from the car's owner,then get the parts to repair/replace
what needs repair.
In some cases,the car's owner sends the needed parts to shop/RIP Track that does the repair.
Then there's the Labor bill from NY&A to the car's owner.

RS50 was seen in Jamaica this morning at 9:05 AM headed westbound to Fresh Pound, the eastbound trip went by Queens Village at 11:16 AM/11:17 AM. The westbound trip had 2 CDEX and the rest were C&D scrap cars white and black, the eastbound trip RS51 had a mix of cars. #261 and #270 were the power on this run on RS50/RS51.
