How has both the freight and passenger business been this summer? Are they getting cars from the B&P 1 or 2 times per week?

^The A&A got 10+ cars from the B&P the other day. A pic was posted to the A&A Facebook group.

I do not know anything about how the passenger train is doing.

2017 is starting off well for the A&A.

The B&P dropped off 15/16 cars last week. One load was lumber.

I have never seen a load of lumber in one of their trains. Nice catch!

The last time I checked, the lumber was unloaded on the main line, under the Hwy. 39 overpass near the interchange. A forklift unloads a little from each side until the car is empty. The lumber is then trucked to the lumberyard.

The B&P dropped off 12 cars for the A&A this week.

Two were lumber cars which were unloaded under the Rt 39 bridge at the B&P interchange.

Sixt Lumber in Yorkshire/Chaffee.

If they get boxcars, they are unloaded at the Arcade wye,

The 80-tonner returns to Arcade this morning with 7 empties in a steady rain after an early morning run to North Java.

#112 had just finished switching around coaches for a 1pm passenger train with #18 today.
