It's also the only possible origin of a car without reverse moves.Another story says "The New York, Susquehanna and Western Railway car - which was carrying plastic pellets - was parked near the Burrstone Road bridge off the North-South Arterial.", which is a fair bit more than 1/2 mile.

Cuz if not, I'll bet a few drivers have brown pants seeing a lone hopper fly across Oriskany and down Schuyler with no signals.Very possibly - a light loco will usually trip signals.

Looking at the 6th picture from the previous post, I would hope they hustle and get the car and the locomotive out of there. It appears to me that there are 2 significant structural cracks in the stairwell above the tender.
