...which they have done!

A few remarks from my travels down there yesterday:

-51st St has seen its weeds cut. Looks like a lawn with tracks now. I assume this is just basic maintenance?

-65th St now has a second customer -- receives something in what looks like pressurized 4 bay covered hoppers. Who are they?

-Who is shipping all those boxcars via NYNJ? There were at least 10 in the yard yesterday.

The boxcars on Track 8? (All the way to the left)

More then jut 2 customers as well. I think they are up to at-least 4 different lumber companies.

Dunno if you all have seen this, but NYNJ is posting progress pictures for their various projects on their website -- I highly recommend you all check out.

Also, the last page of their tariff ( http://www.narps.org/FTs_L-R/FT_NYNJ_8000-B-06.pdf" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ) seems to list all their rail-marine customers.

Does anyone have an idea how often and when the rail barge arrives/leaves loads/unloads in Jersey City (Greenville Yard)?

And just like that it's just 1501 again.

KLWX 253 was sent back to Greenville on Friday.

2293 must have went back either on Wednesday or Friday

Got a chance to photograph NYNJ today.

-The LIRR gons that were whitelined (blue-lined?) have been joined by a string of beat up GERX gondolas

-Bush Terminal's basically abandoned, no cars except the 2 scraplines.

-How often is Sims served? The track was rusted over from the end of the "yard" to Sims itself.

Sims is done once or twice a week usually. If it rained recently, the rails are going to rust.

There was some talk of actually finding an operator for SBMT recently. Has that again fallen through?

Its the NYC EDC. Takes at least 20 years for a project to be finished and have an operator.
