Would like to see that, especially NYA freight trains using it to service Belmont with the boxcars of feed.

How many carloads of horse food a year delivered to Belmont?
Since my friend continues to chain smoke nonstop, she is probably an Alco.

I don't but I've always wondered why they don't have a train or two go East after the race. They already have that track in use to the west to bring people back to Penn Station, they should use it to bring people back to Mineola and Hicksville. Saturday train traffic is no rush hour and with the limited Hempstead Branch service enacted on Belmont Stakes Day it should be feasible.
