Medford Team Track - Freight Loading dock Question

Listed on the LIRR 1986 maps for: General Bldg Supply leased platform. It appears active via 2017 Bing maps Bird's Eye view and is fenced off.

1. Is this currently actively served by NY&A?
2. If so, What customers and loads are delivered?

Thanks Folks! :-)

General Building products which turned into Triangle Building Supply is still serviced by NYA, but if not a boxcar the center beam flats will go to Brookhaven Rail Terminal a bit east.

Thank you. Is there a regular car spot interval or?

There is/was also a customer that took sheetrock on centerbeam flatcars at Medford Team. Can't remember the company name at the moment.

Probably before Gershow Recycling had its own siding.

Three C420s and possibly an MP-15ac up front. Awesome picture.

Don't have exact dates on these but it was during the 1988 or 1989 era.
