Yes it is BCP.
Its now a Veterinarian.
A little further up the tracks is Lenape Forge. They have a siding, but its no longer used.
They pretty much ship everything by truck now.
For some reason our local railroad has pretty much endured. Its customers are Mital (steel), Scotts (soil products), Tastycake (food), Herrs Potato Chips (food), and several lumber yards. They also seem to be busy running LNG from ports to customers. Thers a few others, but those are the “big” customers.

I have RR experience when I worked for about 5 different car repair shops over the years as a welder. (ak carmen) This thread is about anything associated with RR's.
Where can someone buy pieces of track? I have seen pieces on Craigslist and they were very expensive.

I'd suggest your locale steel recycling yard. If they don't, ask them who does.

This thread got me interested in railroads so I toured a railroad museum when I was in Savannah Georgia recently, found out what they used for "oil dry" back in the day, toured an old turntable/ roundhouse that's still in use and poked around a few old pullman cars, diesel, and coal locomotives, got accustomed to the old tuxedo black white paint jobs on southern engines. It's interesting this museum tries to keep everything operational and restored when money and time is available.

I wish reporters, etc. knew the difference between a locomotive and a train.
