Used to be a lot of business in that location. Friend's family member used to have a fruit? distribution business in the building at the end of that same spur. They ended up giving up rail delivered because Guilford became so unreliable.

Looks like there were quite a few on that spur at one time, down to only the Asphalt and Lynch?

Same old story like many of their clusters like that though.

Already been taking cars for a few months now I was told. Using the existing siding off Track 2.

They also had been using the J-Rod siding off the #1, although I’m not sure if they still use that, I haven’t been down there much lately. There is a bad ordered boxcar that’s shoved in to the end of the siding that’s been there for a while.
