No traffic has been shifted from CSX. Traffic from both CSX and NYNJ has increased. The only effect "HH" has really had on CSX service is late inbounds.


Wow so who are all these new/increased service customers? I didn't know NY&A traffic had picked up enough to support CSX interchange at increased levels along with their growing interchange business with NYNJ..

I would say P&W stone has increased to some huge totals also. All three CSX,NS, and P&W have all increased traffic to Long Island. Gershow Recycling really helped boost the totals to/from NYNJ.

Does P&W still come down there 3 days a week? In around midnight, out the next evening around 6? I've tried catching them a time or two and came up empty.

Yup, same times. They get into Pond around 3-4am though.

What does NY&A typically come down to work the NYNJ Interchange?
