The hack(s) appear to be on abandoned track? Thank you.
Not abandoned. It's used for MW equipment, or sometimes the fire tank cars are parked there.
Thank you. YFD 201 indicates?

YFD201 is the crew book designation of a Yard Freight Drill assignment in Holban Yard. Originally 201 would be a job on the second tour, beginning in the afternoon; a "half night" job. The 101 would begin in the morning (daylight) and the 301 would be a late night "3rd Trick" job.

A YPD would be a passenger service drill assignment. A drill assignment does switiching within a yard. RF would be Road Freight. Railroad and maritime author Bob Sturm coined those designations in the early 1970's when he was responsible for redesigning the LIRR crew book...

Sherri Hine (nee McKenna) began in passenger service in the 1980's where she was always a cheerful, competent and spirited employee. Those qualities followed her into yard service making her many friends and holding her in high regard by both her coworkers and the Company.

I went into my Semaphore archives: http://www.trainsarefun.com/lirr/semaph ... aphore.htm
and here are Bob Strum material as you indicated: http://www.trainsarefun.com/lirr/semaph ... m04-92.jpg

Strum indicates 1992 YFD-100 is a Yard A LIC job at the time.
