...which they have done!

A few remarks from my travels down there yesterday:

-51st St has seen its weeds cut. Looks like a lawn with tracks now. I assume this is just basic maintenance?

-65th St now has a second customer -- receives something in what looks like pressurized 4 bay covered hoppers. Who are they?

-Who is shipping all those boxcars via NYNJ? There were at least 10 in the yard yesterday.

More then jut 2 customers as well. I think they are up to at-least 4 different lumber companies.

Dunno if you all have seen this, but NYNJ is posting progress pictures for their various projects on their website -- I highly recommend you all check out.

http://nynjr.com/construction-progress/

Also, the last page of their tariff ( http://www.narps.org/FTs_L-R/FT_NYNJ_8000-B-06.pdf ) seems to list all their rail-marine customers.

Does anyone have an idea how often and when the rail barge arrives/leaves loads/unloads in Jersey City (Greenville Yard)?
