out of curiosity, has there been any 'new' Freight shippers on the NEC since amtrak took it over? Could there be, or is it all legacy?

It would appear that on weekends H86 utilizes CR's Chester Sec as its route too and from Stoney Creek Yd.

NS-63W mty Stone Train rumbling up #2 Track at Prospect Park Sta with a very colorful leader, NS 4000 the "Class" AC44C6M in her Blue & Silver livery.
On a different note: It would appear that H86 very rarely runs North anymore using the NEC between HOOK & PHIL. I've been catching it
pretty regularly thru Essington on CR's Chester Sec.
