It's in Brooklyn on the line to Bay Ridge.
See the attached link. in the satellite image you can see where the spur comes off the NY&A line.

There's also a thread about the Brooklyn Terminal Market on the LIRR forum. Interesting that one of the last posts there was asking how active is it and B&M1227 photographs a move.

Nothing spectacular. Was driving around Farmingdale on Saturday, 4-15-17 about 2:40 PM and swung by Coastal. Then I noticed empty CB flats on the double-ended siding and caught NYA GP38-2s 270/261 with 4 mt flats and 9 loaded C&D gons apparently just having switched out Coastal. Amazingly the Geeps pushed the train west to Route 110 and looked to head east after allowing passage of LIRR Mu train. Posillico Asphalt had full storage tracks of aggregate hoppers. Paving season in business apparently.

This morning NYAR 300, 270,155 with 6 cars (4 box (including 1 very clean RBOX), 1 loaded centerbeam, 1 tank) on the siding in Wyandanch. 300 was very clean compared to the 2 others. 300 also appears to have tinted cab windows.

Thx to the pair of Geeps and large hoppers of stone that stopped at Grand ave xing in Lindenhurst this Monday Jun 19. I gave a wave and honk as the let us pass. Where was that stone or trash going up the Central?
