After reading the document several times to understand the "Legalese", the document states on page 4 that the lot is "currently vacant and has never been developed" and that " installation of mainline switch and 11,000 feet of track" as well as other infrastructure is what they are looking for funds for.What I don't understand is that they are looking for a a railroad rehabilitation loan from the New York State Department of Transportation, see page 5. How can they get a rehab loan if there's nothing there?
It's going to be interesting to see if this really happens. There have been numerous proposals for this parcel over the last 20 years or so. Several developers wanted to build a mall because of the proximity to the LIE exit 66 but they couldn't get the zoning changed. The power plant thing has been around about 10-15 years and again it's never happened.
I don't think you can expect to see engines lettered "Suffolk & Southern" but if I understand the phrase "provision of rolling stock" on page 4 correctly, they will have cars for whatever purpose needed and if you go by what the uses stated were it could be several different types of cars.
Oh and by the way, if the cargo stinks like Jay stated, keep in mind that the Brookhaven landfill is only 3-4 miles south of this location.
Don't strain your brain, paint a train.....
