Raising the Roof through the Appalacians

Post by jstolberg » Sun May 02, 2010 9:07 pm

"For the past three years, working in the wee hours to avoid disrupting rail traffic, Billingsley’s crews have been raising the roofs on tunnels in West Virginia, Virginia and Kentucky, enabling them to handle the 20-foot, 3 -inch-high container trains that have had to go around the mountains, through Pennsylvania and Tennessee, because the tunnels were too small.

"The railroad plans to start running the double-stack trains in September."
