This afternoon 270 and 155 were laying over in the yard coupled to a St. Mary's Railway double-door boxcar. There was a cut of covered hoppers on the track across from the locomotives, and few gondolas in the yard from the radioactive soil removal project.

Is a job now based at Hicksville Yard, or were the 270 and 155 outlawed? Also, has the soil removal been completed? There was nothing going on with the gondolas.

What sort of business does Hicksville Yard see these days? Still the tankcars of biodiesel and covered hoppers of plastic pellets? Any other types of rolling stock to be seen? Thanks.

Hicksville Yard looked pretty cleared out a few weeks back in terms of NYA activity. I’m wondering if LIRR is going to commandeer it back for staging for the LIRR third track material. NYA gained the team yard exclusively in 2001 I believe as a concession to not use the Garden Mitchell secondary for freight activity.

This will just leave the New Hyde Park bio diesel customer as the sole Nassau county freight consignee if I’m not mistaken. The stone guy who was in there has been shipping to the Brookhaven Rail Terminal again.

Azzil Granite Materials is a busy customer and uses two tracks at Hicksville Team. This is the same company that receives stone at Brookhaven Rail Terminal. The oil company that was there went out of business last year.

Hicksville team yard was empty today, except for two Trailer Train bulkhead flatcars loaded with concrete ties on the outer yard track that parallels the main line. I guess the LIRR would've picked them up itself at Fresh Pond, rather than have NYA drop them off at the yard?

On the LIRR page, a contributor said there are gondolas in the team yard today. Anybody know anymore- are they LIRR gondolas now that there is no more long spur between the team yard and post office to store that equipment, or other roads equipment here to deliver or receive an offline customer's business? Thanks.

Azzil Granite Materials is the only customer utilizing Hicksville Team. Anything else is LIRR's for staging work trains.

LIRR interchanges with NYAR at Fresh Pond only.

Passed by the Hicksville team yard today and saw the stone operation from the W. John St. end of the yard. When was the freight house demolished and replaced with the pre-fabricated building?
