The previous post-er was referring to the P&G plant. He is correct on the rail traffic posting.
The deal of the Lehigh isn't dead at all - just on hold until fudiciary conditions improve across the board in the industry. I just noted that NS along the Southern Tier Line is preparing for a downturn in traffic.
The red boxcars for Mahoopany have been CP Rail and CN's. They're always blocked and ready to go in the evening at Elmira Yard when the train is marked up. I would assume if the Lehigh Railwaty were running that block of cars would be forwarded at around two in the afternoon on the Sayre turn that handles cripples for GE Railcar. Rusty rail conditions on the Lehigh Secondary mean 10 mph trains and protected crossings using the full 12 hours, just as it is for the Corning Secondary.
I hope I've clarified.
Proficient on the Southern Tier Line, The former PRR Elmira Branch, A little LV, A lot of EL, And of course, the Corning Secondary. Someone always knows more than me. Remember the Binghamton yardmaster that routinely said in a high voice, "No! No! No! That's not what I told you to do!"?
