Yes. SELI & SEOP, road freights from Selkirk. In addition daily jobs went up the Hudson to the sugarhouse just south of the Yonkers Sta. (as the railroad guys called it) & newsprint for the NY Times, down the old NYC freight line to the 60th st loading platform.
Nighttime trips up the Harlem Div & once a week trip up the Put. for the few consignees that still did business with the railroad. All those runs used the Pt Morris branch.

Other than Pt Morris routed traffic included switching work done at Harlem River & the Hunts Pt. produce mkt and switching out the loads for Long Island (and the empties that came back) also went on there daily. WNCH with loads from Cedar hill also ran every other day.
Oak Pt. was a busy place back then. Have no Idea what goes on there now.
