• Who gets coal east of Rochester NY?

  • Guilford Rail System changed its name to Pan Am Railways in 2006.

I was just now watching the Fairport NY Virtual Rain Cam and a loaded eastbound CSX coal train just went by. I can't think of any place east of Rochester that receives coal except the Bow NH powerplant. Does anyone know if they have a load coming?

Bow is supposed to get some this quarter but isn't there a place on the River line that gets them too?

You're right LaFarge Cement in Ravena on the river line gets coal for their kilns. Someone posted that in the CSX forum. So that's where that train was probably headed.
