Is that an active customer?

West or East
West, that'd be something new - actually, the lead on the north side of the main which starts just East of New Hyde Park Rd and heads East goes only to the oil/diesel facility - there seems to be no other extant sidings there to store boxcars on in the area west of the terminal.
To the East, there are 3 boxcars (readily visible) that have been there for at least 20+ years, I remember seeing them in 1989. IIRC the only active customer there in recent memory was Chester Plywood, doesn't look like the siding is even connected anymore.

My bad, east
Wow, that's a loooooong time
Thanks!

I dug up this post and I know that its been a while but another customer to place in red on the map is Island Container in Wyandanch which is no longer receiving cars at this location due to the fact that they have shifted their facility to Deer Park.

With Amerigas closed for years, and now Island Container, there seems to be only a handful of small businesses there (notably, Mister Softee of Suffolk). I wonder if they will try to turn those near vacant blocks into "Wyandanch Rising West" now?

Hope this helps*
Over-consolidation of local Long Island businesses (Island Container by WestRock, Amerigas by Paraco) leading to loss of competition, employment, and tax revenue? Nope, doesn't help, not one tiny bit...

*Yes, I know you really meant in regards to the information update, but company buy-outs from out-of-state companies leading this has been all too common on Long Island over the past decades.

Are these guys even working on the map anymore? They haven't posted anything in years...

I was trying to figure it out for myself before I asked the question but does anyone know who it is/was that got the BNSF covered hoppers for recycled glass? I went through the map and couldn't find this customer.

Edit: never mind I got it, EWG Glass in Queens
