I noticed a string of older freight cars located in the NYS&W yard while I was traveling past the freight house a few days ago. Present were two boxcars of different lengths (both in PC green w/o PC markings), two ancient NYS&W stone hoppers and a wood chip car. When I travelled by the same location yesterday, observed that three of the cars (the smaller boxcar, a hopper & the wood chip car) had seemingly been moved. Then, much to my surprise, observed scrapping activity afoot. One end of a crushed boxcar was clearly visible while, nearby, man and machine were busy at work (the machine was picking up and dropping a car's trucks) It was an interesting scene, especially since I was unaware that this kind of work was occurring in Utica.
