Also east of wheelspur I saw this cut of 9 two-bay covered hoppers. Where do they come from? I've never seen them on the transfer run from Oak Point Yard.
Those gons are a mystery. I don't think they are for sims as sims has no siding. There were 3 back there last weekend.
Those cars at Maspeth are stone cars that come down on P&W. I suspect it's more finely crushed stone than the usual cars? They've been showing up at maspeth since at least this spring (plus maybe a few last summer).
