Was driving home from work tonight and hopped over the Passyunk Av Bridge. I took a glance over in the direction of Eastside Yard noticed a large collection of oil tank cars and at first I thought they were just lined up on the Grays Ferry Connecting Track to South Philly Yard but then I noticed these tankers were about 5 tracks deep and snaked around along the river bank til back where I thought the yard ended were a few BNSF locos. I guess with all the traffic the refineries are getting these days CSX felt the need to to expand the yard.
