LIRR required NYA to man the Stone Train Photo Location: Maspeth Yard 1997. The the rock train heading out to Prima Asphalt, Holtsville, NY with ore jennies. time were being used for the GROW tunneling project in Maspeth. The rock that was removed to build the tunnel was transported to Prima Asphalt in Holtsville, NY. For most of the first few years of the NYA, this was a unit train that ran weeknights (and sometimes on weekends).

Anyone with further photos with these in use?
