As of Monday 4/16, there is a mystery covered hopper sitting at Warren Ave, adjacent to Vesco Oil and Boomer Materials. The 2 current customers are EQ (tanks) and Ferrous (gons).

Vestco gets cars to. Never seen a plastics hopper on the line before.

Saw a Pepsi Cola truck there today pumping from the hopper to the Pepsi Cola tank truck.
