I used to work at Kaiser Alum in Hillside the building east of Bristol Myers. The tracks went thru our plant and we received carloads from various plants thru out the Kaiser System. The building is now known as Hillside Plastics at 200 Rt 22.
Box cars - Alum & Sheet & plate from Trentwood, Wa
Box cars and flat cars - Alum ingot and billet from Chalmette, La
Box cars - firebrick from Colubiana, Oh and Mexico, Mo
Tank cars of chemicals from Gramercy, La
There were about 3 deliveries per week. This continued to around 1987 and in 1989 Kaiser sold the property to Hillside Plastics.
The deliveries beyond us were Pabst brought up to a team track in Irvington, Oasis Foods not sure if that was the name then. In addition in Irvington, Manufacturers Reserve Supply which is still on Woolsey Street and may still be receiving cars.

This is a post back from 2008, the building just east of Bristol Myers was Kaiser Alum now Hillside Plastics and this is some of the activity back from 1976 to 1989 when I was working at Kaiser.
