Re: CN Train Location Updates - October 2020

A pair of box cars at Inland Plywood today. Located at the south end of Pontiac Yard. They get a few cars a month so it's unusual to see two there at the same time.

Would you rather train your job replacement and get a $25k severance check or quit on the spot and leave them scrambling?

Re: NS Peavine talk

Thank you for the update. Did the aggregate pit use rail service this year? The Peavine will be receiving a new customer in the next two years as Nestle Purina Pet Care is going to construct a 550 million dollar state of the art pet food plant in Clermont County. The plant will be ready to go in 202...

Northbound road freight is working north end of Pontiac Yard. Looks like it may pick up a string of CN box cars.

Re: Grand River Railway

Re: Grand River Railway

Not delivering scrap, they serve a large Morton salt plant (loads out). They have a GP10-1 and a GP-40-2 with a slug as power now. The CE...

Re: Grand River Railway
