They're 1 block away from the tracks on W. Queen St. That's them to the left with the orange trucks in the lot: https://goo.gl/maps/9FTKtkQZuZ12

I guess if Yarde Metals didn't mind having that sign and nicely-manicured garden mowed down you could fork off a new siding, put down a diagonal grade crossing at the Newell/W. Queen intersection (4-way stop signs), and bring it right onto their property with only 400 ft. of new track construction. Otherwise I can't see where they'd find the room to unload anywhere near here. The abutting commercial businesses aren't going to give up their rear parking lots for a loading pad.
