The last loaded coal train was delivered by CSX in February, if you see coal hoppers moving today, then those are the gathered emptied making their last trip home...

Yes, it was the empty. Should have added that.

Hi, I'm in NJ but just wanted to ask if Kodak still runs their own RR? I remember reading a Trains magazine article years ago about the Kodak RR operations up there and their large yard. Thanks

Rail service in the former Kodak property is now provided by a subsidiary of GWI.

It is currently called "Rochester Switching Services, Inc." operated by Rochester & Southern.

I have been away from Kodak Park for 6 years now (I worked there 1995 to 2012) but last I knew they were still operating the railroad with two or perhaps all three former Kodak locomotives, just with the KPRR markings removed. I believe one of the three has left the property, (although maybe it was only spotted outside the Kodak Park for maintenance, and then went back, not sure about that.)

Kodak Park Railroad closed in 2007. Contracted to GWI Switching Services now.
