Used to be CT->NY Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday nights (arriving at fresh pond around 1AM), NY->CT M, W, Friday (leaving btw 5-7pm). Sounds like it might only be one or two runs per week at the moment though?

Spotted this train at 7pm last night at Queens blvd. They stopped just short of the BQE flyover, maybe due to a random tanker car left near the switch? Perhaps CSX set it out or refused to accept it on interchange. Whatever the case by 7:45 they were on the roll again.

At 8:05p. noticed the last 85 cars of the train northbound over the mainline of the L.I.R.R. Ironically, the train came south Tuesday night , 3/16/21, at 8:20p. with 3 engines, 1 in P&W paint and two in G&W paint.

Last night about 10:00p. the train, 5 engines and the first 50 cars of the train, crossed over the mainline of the L.I.R.R. north towards Oak Point and came to a stop. A few minutes later, it pulled forward again and stopped. Shortly afterwards, slowly, it made a reverse move. It picked up speed and reversed back towards Fremont.
