This afternoon 270 and 155 were laying over in the yard coupled to a St. Mary's Railway double-door boxcar. There was a cut of covered hoppers on the track across from the locomotives, and few gondolas in the yard from the radioactive soil removal project.

Is a job now based at Hicksville Yard, or were the 270 and 155 outlawed? Also, has the soil removal been completed? There was nothing going on with the gondolas.

What sort of business does Hicksville Yard see these days? Still the tankcars of biodiesel and covered hoppers of plastic pellets? Any other types of rolling stock to be seen? Thanks.
