Brookhaven Terminal Design Submission 08/2007  That map is a bit outdated, and has been changed. Currently, it's a three-track yard, with two tracks designated for aggregates and the third track as a runner. There will be a 4 track team yard that will switch off of the running track, and will wind up being adjacent to the LIRR Main Line Switch and the lead to the yard. There are also two stub end tracks at the far end of the yard.

Currently, the only customer that is being serviced is carloads of stone. There soon will be carloads of flour and biodiesel and more will be able to be handled once the team yard trackage is constructed. This phase will begin next week. The property east of the current operation will also be developed over the next few years. That trackage is not yet finalized. The current yard works well despite what the plan looks like, and the rest will be designed with input from "railroad men." 10/01/2011
