Giving this thread a bump after 10+ years.
How much traffic is there on the Oak Point connector these days? Of course, D&H is now out of the picture.
Still one CSX round trip each day to/from Selkirk? Mostly for garbage? Average car count?
And, on Hell Gate, besides the stone trains, is it still one round trip from Oak Point to Fresh Pond MOnday-Saturday for the CSX NYA interchange?
Thanks, JS

For a while there were the daily manifest round trip and a trash car round trip. Those might have been combined though. There's also a switcher run to serve local industries.
Hell Gate has early morning seasonal stone runs, and a daily round trip to NYAR.
