Neubaum's Coffee Importers expanding to Empire City

Greetings Blog Followers,

The Empire City Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with the New York Central Train Layout is proud to announce that Neubaum's Coffee Importers is expanding it's operations to Empire City. As the premier coffee importer from the upper mid-west coffee aficionados are familiar with the Neubaum product line. Neubaum coffee can be found in exclusive restaurants, railroad dining cars, private clubs and hotels.

In a press release, owner and C.E.O. Steve Neubaum, stated his company was looking to the rapidly expanding Empire City marketplace and the city's improving road and rail infrastructure as the next logical place for his growing company to add another distributorship. Mr Neubaum is a bonafide rail fan and model railroader and was able to secure the old Heileman Beer Distributor building which is rail served. Beer drinkers can relax as Heilman expanded to a bigger rail served location just outside of Empire City.

Local painting contractors have arrived and get to work on the old sign.

A Milwaukee Road  refrigerated trailer has been spotted at the truck loading dock. The trailer arrived earlier in the day via rail at North Side Yard. 

The national media is always interested in the doings of Neubaum's Coffee Importers and have sent a crew to cover this expansion.

In need of quality lumber for his building and shipping needs Mr Neubaum had a 40' boxcar sent to Neal's Lumber and Hardware.

Two New York Central GP9s handle the switching duties.

Neal himself (in blue coveralls) checks on the loading. Neal has informed his forklift operator that Mr Neabaum is a fellow Train Lifer and to make certain that this shipment is perfect.

Mr Neubaum, always friendly, introduces himself to a lady who had stopped by to watch CNN interview Mr Neubaum. "Hello, you can call me Steve" "How about going out for a cup of coffee"
