This rumor has been around since the breakup of Conrail. Anyway, Campbell Hall operations are down from where they were 10 years ago. I try a crack at this question( please help fill in the question marks/etc )
West of Suffern on the Tier:
**Nepara Chemical (CLOSED)
**Utility Pole customer/O&R-Port Jervis (active?)
**84 lumber (active?)
**ShopRite Warehouse (closed?)
**MN&J RR Crawford Ind. Track (active!)
Don't know if there's anymore customers on-line past the old Maybrook yard but the lumber company you are refering to is Sherwood Lumber Corp on Main Street in Maybrook. I was out that way last week and saw workers unloading a boxcar from there siding. Also, when I arrived at Campbell Hall I saw two UP reefer cars of potatoes being unloaded into tractor trailers. Looked like the same cars that used to be delivered to the Shipways siding (NYC yard) on the CSX river line about a year or so ago. Looked to have 20 plus cars in the yard. Norfork Southern 5617 and 5211 were the local engines being used.
