Passed by Hicksville Yard this morning W/B and then again E/B in the afternoon. First, on the spur east of the yard that parallels the Main Line there was a vintage Louisville & Nashville bulkhead flatcar. Also spotted at the same stretch of spur was a cut of loaded LIRR hoppers. At the throat of the yard there was a pair of LIRR MP-15ac's, 150 and 157. The yard itself was full of covered hoppers and there was a single Railbox boxcar spotted at the unloading ramp.
When I came back past in the afternoon, 150 and 157 were gone, as were the LIRR hoppers. However, upon arrival at Huntington there they were, nose-to-nose with an M-7 train parked next to the platform on the south side of the station. I didn't stick around to see what was going to happen next. Quite cold out there today.
