Is Trenton Metal still getting rail service?

Post by Hamilton53 » Sat Jun 30, 2018 12:24 pm

For quite a few years, and as late as July of 2017, Trenton Metal & Iron (on Enterprise Ave, Trenton) was getting rail service for outgoing scrap metal. On July 11, 2017 a fire broke-out on the property. Since then, I haven't seen any gondolas parked on the track parallel to Enterprise Ave. Does anyone know: has rail service permenatly been terminated; is there a reason; will service begin again and if so, when? --- in a related subject, is the local NS freight (out of Morrisville, PA) that serviced TM&S, still servicing Certified Steel (just east of TM&S and parallel to the Northeast Corridor)? And what is that freight's symbol? Thanks very much.
