No, what this is is the MTA building a new facility to receive railcars.

My first guess is that they're referring to 36-38th Street Yard. But at the same time, I don't know. 

 

Rail Yard in Astoria anyone?

On the Dashboard Map, it is shown as 36-38th.

I finally found out how to link it with the map.

That means they've gotta be trucking them over the Verrazano to get there... That will be quite the sight

Or they could be using the car float.
