New freight track east of Pine Aire

Post by DaveBarraza » Tue Sep 10, 2019 4:36 pm

Has anyone heard about the east end of Pine Aire being extended (I know they just installed a brand new interlocking hut, but...) Or perhaps there might be plans for a DEF track east of there? Between Brentwood Station and 111?

Just curious, thanks.

Supposedly that might be a future double ended freight in the area you described. I’m not sure why there being Pineaire is only a few more miles west, but I’ll take any freight expansion.

There is something about this new siding in the LIRR Forum thread "New BRENT."

This siding will get at least an Electric locked switch,likely uncontrolled with a fixed amount of waiting time to get the unlock.
if during the timer rundown the mainline track is shunted,NO unlock will happen

I guess that's less expensive than interlocking it with Divide???
