#154 was seen yesterday morning at 10:42 AM going by the Hillside Support facility station westbound light to Fresh Pond yard, it went by Queens Village at 12:57 PM in the afternoon with a flat car of track pieces, 8 FTSX flat cars with concrete ties on it and 2 bulkhead flat cars loaded with Concrete ties too for Belmont Park. At 1:51 PM #154 went westbound to Holban yard.

#167 was seen moving around Richmond yard after 10:30 AM that same morning, it was caught again but this time in Queens Village at 2:15 PM headed eastbound and returned westbound at around 3:05 PM.

The move with #163 from late this morning it was the trainset which it had equipment trouble west of Hampton Bays on the 1:04 AM Montauk Branch train from Jamaica to Montauk.

Edit: At 4:15 PM late this afternoon a 13 car work train with Hopper cars went by Bethpage with #150 and #161 headed westbound.

Today 11/13 around 12:28PM 160 and 152 were headed westbound in Garden City on the sandite train. Are the sandite trains running during the day now? I always used to see them running at night?

They've been running during the day for a couple of weeks now, as needed.

It was #152 leading I caught it the other morning too 11/25 at New Hyde Park as it went by at 10:50 AM which it came right after train #8016. #167 was the Jamaica on that day too and #154 was coupled on a 6 car C3 set at Richmond Hill.

Today 12/12 at 11:21 AM 167 and 150 were seen heading west on the Sandite train on the Garden Mitchell Secondary and at 11:35 heading west on the Hempstead Branch through Garden City.
I have provided a link of this extremely RARE appearance of the Sandite train on the Garden Mitchell Secondary east of Washington Avenue.
