Also, from the pdf of Cuomo's Strategic Plan & Regional Project Awards:

Central New York


The New York, Susquehanna and Western Railway Corp.

Cortland Transload Terminal

The New York, Susquehanna & Western Railway will construct a new transload terminal in the City of Cortland. The facility will provide Central New York businesses with access to rail transportation without making a large capital investment. It will provide service to companies that do not have a rail line into their facilities but use/ship large quantities of material.

So, in other words, a team track.

No, no, it's the Cortland Transload Terminal. "Team tracks" are so 19th century.

Received information that this facility will be constructed on the grounds of the old Wickwire steel plant.

Initially plastic pellets and scrap will be transloaded.

Update (or rehash?): Progressive Railroading

New York, Susquehanna & Western, Massena Terminal Railway receive state funds for freight-rail projects

The Central New York Regional Economic Development Council recently announced that New York, Susquehanna & Western Railway Corp. (NYSW) has received contract approval for more than $900,000 in state funding for the design and construction of a multi-modal rail terminal in Cortland, N.Y.

The terminal will enable short-haul trucks to load and unload freight directly onto rail cars, enhancing NYSW's ability to move cargo in and out of the Cortland area, state officials said in a prepared statement. The project also involves the construction of three sidings south of NYSW's Cortland spur and other necessary infrastructure.

"The Cortland Transload Terminal will enable Central New York Region businesses to address the cost of shipping by taking advantage of the efficiencies of rail transportation without having to be located next to the railroad," said NSYW President Nathan Fenno. "The goal of the facility is to help local business save money, increase flexibility and improve reliability. Consequently, the more freight that moves by rail, the less we move by long-haul trucks."
