"right on time" for once. Only the garbage traffic has started for now. I think the NYCT still has more people they have to train before they can start their operation. Bayway Yard office has be reopened as a crew signup location, I'm not sure if PR-1 will go back to BY-1. The garbage traffic will be ferried to/from Bayway on PR-52

Here all the info I have about todays historical railroad return to staten island. The job symbol is BY8 engine was CSX 4451 came over the bridge around 930am with empty cars bound for fresh kills transfer station. BY8 finished up and went over the bridge around 125pm head them on the scanner in the clear on south side of bayway.

Driving on 440 tonight I saw the NYC sanitation top loaders loading garbage for tomorrows train. From what I can make out there was about 20 orange containers and I guess 10 cars.

What channel do they use 160.800?
I guess that explains the orange garbage cars on the Q433 the other day on the riverline

Well that i don't know yet. I thought it will be a m-f job. I know the crew goes on duty at 8am. I didn't hear them on the radio today. I could have missed them. My friend who works at howland hook said nothing went by today.

Went down to Bayway yard yesterday afternoon. An Oak Island to
Port Reading train just set out a cut of brand new trash cars.
Here is a shot of what must be BY8 with CSX #4451:

Notice the sign in the pic. I took the pics quickly as I didn't want to draw
suspicion.

Here is a shot of more trash cars:

The flatcars in the pics are marked EPIX(leased?) and the containers are
marked DSEU. But the cars set out by the local looked like spine cars,
were brand new and were orange just like the containers and were
marked DSEX.

First thing first nice shots myfavscr....

I am trying to figure out there schedule since its only the 2nd day of operation. Yesterday the crew went on duty at 8am came over the bridge at 930am and was back in NJ by 130pm. I heard them contact south jersey. Today there was no report of them unless another crew comes at night when * traffic is at a mininum. Maybe blockline may have some info. Tomorrow is a new day once I know when to expect them I will head over to south ave to take some shots.
