Further progress as of 10/31. NY&A loco 155 on the siding with a string of hoppers full of ballast. Inside EPCAL track laying vehicles visible by the entrance, grading work further west around the turn. The crossing is newly repaved, no sign of a crossing gate or crossbuck signs.

So that makes 155 the first locomotive to travel those rails since when? And does anyone know the last LIRR power to work the spur's last run, whenever that was? One of the Alco C420's, perhaps???

If this makes anybody feel better, I took that today after I got off work!

As of 11/4 the crossing signs are installed as well as RR painted on the roadway. The Grumman gate was open and the work train no longer on the siding along Connecticut Ave. I didn't have time to go looking for it, it could've been in the wooded part of EPCAL.

Why such an abundance of ballast?
  by SemperFidelis
 
You want a lot of ballast beneath your ties in areas where sand is abundent. If the ties sink into the sand they'll rot very quickly.

Excellent photos please keep them coming. Does any one know approx when this spur is supposed to open?

159 is laid up by the switch for the main with a few cars. No sign of 155

Anybody know how old the rail they reused is? I guess it was found to be sound after 30 years of dormancy?
