Flashing tin? what's dat? (I ain't no flasher!)

That area has always been sketchville. taggers, druggies. the usual. They know better than to even look in my direction :o) . I didn't know k9 used the place, but Vandal Squad likes to hang out there sometimes to collect some taggers. I'm surprised I didn't run into them, actually. Harbor patrol also has a dock just inside the BAT, just north of the float bridges. I went to get a look at them old cars in there and when I arrived by that tunnel area, I smelt ya'all a mile away... hehehe! I stayed way, way off to the side takin' some long exposure photos (not sure if anyone noticed me there, as I didn't use a flash at all). I don't like being in anyone's way when they got * to do.

Poor ole' NYCH... what do they do, float once a week anymore?

I can never keep track of what RS number is what. Now I know... heheh, is it more or less fun than working the bush, that's the real question?

155 leading six BNSF reefers, 151 and an empty BN centerbeam flatcar w/b past the Richmond Hill team yard this afternoon, around 1330 or so....odd to see the 151 sandwiched between the reefers and the flatcar. Why was this train set up like this? What customer were these reefers from?

When we saw it at Hix, it had the 151 on east end, 3 box cars, and the 155 on west end idling.

I heard them go in the clear at Nassau Suffolk at around 10:45am. With an engine on both ends they didn't have to go to Northport to run around.
