Thanks for the info. Pumpers the rigging firm that your referring to is Supor Bros on First St. Many moons ago they would always have one or two tank cars on their siding. I don't know if they still receive rail service. Also, I think General Chemical is the industry that the M&E interchanges with CSX for. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I think all customers on Center Street are gone. The chemical plant was recently demolished. Google maps satellite view shows that there is no siding anymore near 1st street. The street view shows the demolished factory. I believe CSX serviced customers on Center Street, and had room to interchange with M&E at a runaround track east Frank Rogers Blvd.

Yes, they now only run three days a week

And thank you too Chuxter, yes Bunge is in Kearny so I imagine their switch job is based in the South Kearny yard. Bunge is in the vegetable shortening business.

I believe it's a job out of Croxton.... I'll usually see them come past on NJT at around 11PM while leaving work at the MMC.

Up until about 6 or 7 years ago Supor would get an occasional coil car of steel, which you would see spotted outside their ware house along 280. Been a LONG time since I've seen them get anything.

The Center Street work is handled by Conrail's SK13....
