They usually go only to Garden 3W block which is approximately 1500 feet east of Garden interlocking. The reason they go onto the secondary is because the sandite train crew needs to stay clear of the regular scheduled passenger trains on the Hempstead Branch and if there is not enough time in the schedule to spin in Hempstead yard, they go onto the secondary and wait there for clearance to head back west to the mainline.
But this is a first for me as this is the first time I have ever seen the sandite this far east on the secondary.
