Does anyone know how often or when NYA comes from FP to switch the new siding? I would like to catch some action there sometime as I live close by.
Once a railfan....always a railfan.

Once they do it will only be "as needed" since that track is for overflow and P&W outlaw.

Over the LIRR main, loaded CDEX Gons rolling north/west on the siding towards Oak Point being met by a south/eastbound CSXT freight also moving. CSXT was led by SD40-2/GP38-2 plus more but couldn't see through the murk. Train had boxcars and covered hoppers up front. First time to see trains moving on both tracks.
