There appeared to be a portable loading ramp alongside the car. Is this a recent frequent occurance or was it a chance siting? I've been down that way many times over the years and never saw any activity there in the past.
Yeah, that's the Folsom Team Track...current consignee using that is Atlantic Sweetners, which is in the building across the tracks at this time...they get a car every few weeks or so.
Don't think they have anything down there right now...CA-51 pulled car RBOX 30854 from the spur on October 4th...I think that was the latest delivery to that place...
That siding is JUST north of the BART DCS block limit station...which allows 51 to run down there and serve that place without requiring a form D all the way to some out of the way place like TUCK...they shove the car down there from Winslow (always a big winner for the crew, they don't have a shove car down there, and so riding on the rear for that kind of distance will get you some extra pay)...
