Has anyone asked or answered the basic question as to why they are installing a DEF here? Is there a new customer or is it just for changing ends?

I have no idea why they are putting in a Double Ended Freight siding, because I didn't even though this was a project. It is not for changing ends because the siding will not be electrified. Most likely it is going to be used for storage of freight cars, because I don't see any new customers since it will be located to the North to the ROW. It will have electric lock switches, and be similar to PILGRIM. Although I'm repeating what has been stated in previous entries on this subject.

Sorry, I meant changing ends for any freight/work trains.

It turns out that this weekend's outage on the Ronkonkoma Branch is NOT because of the new DEF track, it is actually due to rail/tie replacement between the Pond Road grade crossing and the KO Yard (This includes through the station). Track one already has concrete ties laid down, and a new switch will be installed to connect the electrified siding on the North side of the ROW.
