New Coal trains to Tadmor on the former L&NE

I know at least one coal train ran to Tadmor back in September. Does anyone know if more have run? Any information on who the customer may be and how they are unloading coal cars at the former LNE Tadmor yard? NS has created a train symbol 504 for Shire Oaks, pa to Tadmore, pa. NS spells it with an "e" at the end. Since they created a symbol for this move I'm thinking its regular buisness now as opposed to an extra move. Anyone have any information on this?

Driving on rt 248 on Monday feb 11th as I'm passing tadmor I looked over to see Coal trains being unloaded. I had my toddler in the car took him over to go see as trains are one of his favorite things at 4. And snapped a few pictures

On October 12, 2013, the H74 took 26 loaded hoppers to Tadmor from Allentown.  The train was powered by three GP38-2's and one GP59.  Here the train is about to enter the wye t Bath, PA.  The bridge is former N&B, Hercules Cement is in the background, and you might notice the L&NE switch stand that is still in service.

Another shot from the October 12, 2013 H74, this time at Tadmor.  The loads have been placed into the yard and the power is now on the south (west) end of the cars.  A string of empties sits on the adjacent yard track (blocked from view).
