You beat me to it. For those who don't have access to Snoozeday's website:
If the article is accurate, seems as though we'll see shipments by rail start as soon as this week, destined for the Brookhaven Rail Terminal. By June, a new track and a 200,000 foot warehouse will be completed, part of it enclosed while some will be outdoors. It just seems like it will by building materials at this point. But, if it works out, maybe they'll expand their shipments by rail to include the other items that Home Depot carries, including appliances. More good news for NYAR. Also sounds like good news for those who use the bridges, as it will reduce the number of long distance truck routes required for Home Depot's distribution to LI. We'll still probably see the same number of trucks on the LI roads, as the goods will still need to be distributed from Yaphank, instead of from the current warehouse in NJ.
