Just wondering, since Coastal is obviously still functioning, does anyone know how the lawsuits that Babylon township brought against it were finally resolved.
Latest I could find was this legal document from August 2013, which without some effort I cannot readily determine what the outcome was.

Any info?

Few days ago was at Airport plaza. There was a NYA train waiting for a east bound LIRR train to pass. The NYA train had a MP15AC up front, apx 15 C&D cars and a GP38-2 on the rear. When the LIRR train had passed the NYA freight headed west. I wasn't right next to the tracks, and I know the MP15AC's can be quite loud, and maybe it was just the acoustics, but from my vantage point I could swear by the sound the train was being pushed by the GP38-2.

tj48:

You probably are right that the GP38-2 was pushing. Don't know it you had time to witness, but I've seen that after switching Coastal the NY&A will head west out of the siding and have the dipsatcher throw the West switch to head east. I thought there was a problem with the East switch (see separate post about this that jayrmli answered). It appears that they would rather have the switch thrown for them and back-out of the siding. That you mentioned there was an EB LIRR train just adds more to it. They probably backed out and followed it.

On a separate note, there seems to be a seasonal slowdown at Coastal. The pile of C&D debris has been worked all the way down. It almost looks that what they receive daily gets loaded that day. Coastal also seems to have acquired some newer or rebuilt hi-side gons. They still have the ex coal service bathtub gons but also have some new-looking (black) C&D gons. I've also seen some cars that look like old 50' Aislide covered hoppers that have had the top removed and the sides extended with CDEX reporting marks.

Posillico next door may be ramping down as well. Paving season is probably drawing to a close for the winter. I have not seen any deliveries of stone lately except for 1 (bad order?) 3-bay hopper. The Trackmobile has been gone for a few weeks as well.

Those newer c&d cars have been around awhile - they have a bunch of different reporting markings, though I'm pretty sure some have slowly been changed to CDEX. Seems like there's a few less on the CSX train every day, though plenty of general merch to make up for it.

P&W hasn't come to town this week with any stone trains (maybe they ran monday - i forget offhand), so I suspect none of the stone customers will be getting regular service until march.

Way overdue to bump this thread.

Over the winter, Coastal added another section of fencing with green netting on the West side near the shed which protects the C&D pile.
So the fence along New Highway from about the grade crossing to the 1st truck entrance is double high, say 16'. Pretty sure this was done as a windblock as previously posted Coastal use to park one C&D gon on the west side of the wye on their property for this purpose.

Posillico, across the highway, is receiving cars again and also has something in the works. It looks like a new horizontal conveyor is being constructed (to move gravel?).
It starts just about where the dump pits are for the railcars now and goes to the west. This started in March 2015. Will try to take and post pictures.

In general: Coastal seems to be back to loading 10-12 cars (daily). Posillico gets, unloads and then releases 16 cars at a time. Would like to get an idea about the frequency of their gravel shipments. Have seen occasions where the RS-80 is about 30 cars coming into Farmingdale - 16 loads of gravel and 10-15 empty C&D gons.

Looking over this thread and see it's almost a year since anything.

Funny, though, the report from April 2015 is almost the same as April 2016.
Posillico has started receiving cars of gravel again. In recent weeks had not seen anything, but last evening showed about 16 empty cars. The Trackmobile was in the gated area.

Coastal's yard and lead track had loads ready for pick-up. Probably close to 12 loads. The shed was packed with debris almost to the ceiling. I was hoping to see the NY&A switch both last night but couldn't hang around. Coastal needs their usual empties again.

Well, stable industrial operations (NOT a given on Long Island) should have somewhat similar reports year over year.

"Interesting times" for Long Island industries tend never to be a good thing - just ask the (soon to be former) workers at Quantum Medical imaging...

There will always be trash to cart off LI.

Yes, but in the future they may decide to try and replicate the incredible success of the Mobro barge waste-hauling experiment.

Is Posillico expanding again? The building along the sidings was taken down.
