Thanks for the response about the covered hoppers. I could believe that they are carrying sand since I've seen the covered hoppers in Maspeth, [Skyy Materials?]
I believe P&W's arrangement to use the trackage rights on the NEC was for aggregates and similar material only.

I am curious if the P&W is handling this traffic as well to the NY&A.

As far as the sand/cement(?) goes, I heard it is being used largely for the BQE bridge project. And yes, it is from the P&W.

Last week I was down on Federal Road in Danbury I noticed a line of hoppers at Tilcon. Are they still hauling Stone this late into the winter or are the cars just being stored there ??
