Working The Cherry Point Sub

BNSF 2907 on the point of the NEW WEST LOCAL, after leaving its train on the main,made a reverse move of power only into the INTALCO YARD on the Cherry Point Sub to pull out a string of cars,put them on their train,and back the entire train into the INTALCO Yard for the Cherry Point local to deliver to the refineries and the ALCOA smelter.
The only place I remember seeing them doing their switching is at the BP (Arco) refinery, what other businesses do they switch for?
There are tracks to the old CONOCO-PHILLIPS refinery (it may be owned by TESORO now)and the ALCOA smelter.
