Has anyone heard any news about the coal barge unloader construction in the river at Mirant's Morgantown Plant? Has it begun and will it doom the Pope's Creek Secondary? I have not been down that way in a while to see. I do however pass through the south end of the Benning Yard in DC a couple of times per week. There are always a couple of loaded or empty coal trains there. One thing for sure, Benning is getting lots of new ties and there are three new contol point cabinets installed there. There is a new building there that CSX has occupied a few months ago. Lots of Maintenance of way Equipment. If Morgantown and Chalk Point ever stop getting coal from CSX via rail that will wipe just about all of the work for Benning.
The only thing cooler than seeing an ABBA set of EMD F-7's is hearing and ABBA set of EMD F-7's.
