We strayed away from Rochester and are now in the Finger Lakes. LiDiestri Foods' relocation to Kodak Park should help the waning rail traffic to this complex http://www.rbj.net/article.asp?aID=182083
, but one has to wonder how long Kodak itself will be around. Kodak is building up big in China, though. Will Kodak keep the power plants open or will the coal contracts go the way of the Do-Do bird? I am fascinated by what companies are able to survive in the harsh economic climate of NY. i moved my one NYS employee out of NY after they fined us heavily for an innocent mistake that was actually Paychex's fault. Yet, some businesses find a way, just don't expect a lot of growth from anything other than large corporations that know the ropes and can absorb the high costs.
Did Klein Steel ever start taking significant rail deliveries?
Also, I think some of the abandonments that Conrail perpetrated have stifled competition in the post-Conrail Rochester market and this is going to be to the detriment of certain areas of Rochester's decaying insdustrial complex. JMHO
