Not sure, the train may have gone north over the mainline of the L.I.R.R. at 7:35p. Saw a lot of covered hoppers and not much of anything else.

The asphalt plants are off line due to weather(too cold) so no gravel/stone is needed now.

When does this normally run in each direction? Thinking about trying to catch it in Mamaroneck.
