Thanks Freightguy, how many cars per day is CSX typically bringing down to Oak Point Yard these days? I moved out of NYC in 2017 and I am wondering how much of an increase there's been.

I would say the garbage and C&D is at the forefront, but I guess with people making home improvements a huge surge in lumber heading to Long Island also. The Brookhaven Rail Terminal had over 100 cars in it today.

I've noticed the M9s come down on Wednesdays.

Lots of switching for todays CSX outbound. Lite power arrived to the head-end of the train around 9am. They completed their train around 10am. Here's what happened:

Setout the first two boxcars on the siding
Setout 4 cars of empty Centerbeams onto the siding
Setout about 4 cars of empty gondolas onto the siding
Rejoined the cut of mixed freight onto the rest of the train towards the end, keeping the MSW/loaded C&D up front

Seems CSX doesn't like the general freight mixed with the MSW

On SB trip this am spotted Oak Point bound freight stopped with head end near University Heights, approx. 6:20 am on track closest to river. On return it was stopped with head end at Lincoln Ave crossing 7:15 am.
