One of my favorite OMID photos that I've taken over the years. The 408 smoking it up at Burlee Rd, taken in the Summer of 2003.

Inbound loads of rice hulls and diatomaceous earth, outbound loads of apple sauce and juice. They would load 2 to 3 cars a day, and the outbound loads went west to California in 8-car blocks. On a few occasions they required a second switch the same day.
