Yesterday's southbound 710 brought 28 cars into Newport, including 16 loads of lumber, 2 loads of particleboard, 1 load of woodpulp, 1 load of propane, 1 load of fertilizer. There were also at least 5 grain hoppers, although those could have been loads and/or empties. So that's at least 21 loads, if not more. There's a pretty steep climb from North Troy to the top of the hill just west of Newport, although I don't know the gradient. Thanks for the heads-up!
