cars trucked out of 207th St Yard

Have noticed pairs of cars being trucked out of the 215th St end of yard by the river every day or every other day. Which are they and where are they going?

R44s being towed on trailer to scrapping at Sims Metal in Newark, NJ.
Since my friend continues to chain smoke nonstop, she is probably an Alco.

Are they also scraping some R-32's also? There were two being loaded yesterday.

Might be, although no R32s have been taken out of service since 2010. In this view of 207 Street Yard, are some scrapped R32 cars (taken April 1), possibly leftovers from the 2009-10 reef program.
