New industry connection at CP Godfrey?

I was waiting for Q329 at the Interurban (NYC) bike trail bridge and I noticed a new connection was being put in place for a industry. Anyone know what is going in there? It was just a bare dirt lot with some tracks laid out

Something to do with tank cars IIRC.

Also, that bridge is the former interurban, later NYC. Had nothing to do with the GR&I.

Thank you for clarifying which bridge is involved. I was wondering where the heck the GR&I trail bike Is.
