Looks like CSX will serve a glass plant that is now in the process of being construction on Walbridges far south side going towards Luckey and Pemberville on the Columbus Sub.

Guess this was last year. I hadn't been through Jackson in atleast 2 years. Went through tonight wondering through town a bit and happened to notice the crossing was put back in and the track had been cleaned up along with dumped ballast. So I dug around a little bit and found this.


Also noticed the Rt93 crossing south of town was back "in service" (no exempt signs) and the track looked decent (and brush was gone). Anyone know anything about that?

This is being proposed on the opposite side of the Ohio River across from Gallipolis in Point Pleasant West Virginia. If it comes to fruition, the CSX line that runs through here could be seeing outbound shipments.

A Brenntag chemical distribution depot will be coming to Toledo and NS will serve it. It will located there on the north side of the tracks just to the east of the interchange of Airline Junction. And Amware in Brook Park will be revamping the spur that goes to the CSX iNDY sUB so that CSX will serve the facility.

I wonder if this replaced the sand that was coming from Yuma MI. After being closed for several years the Yuma plant reopened, shipped a bunch of frac sand for several months, then stopped shipping by rail suddenly.

Its the attack of the stone and ballast trains. Right now stone traffic shipped by rail is rising to meteoric rates in Ohio. It started with the Wheeling and Lake Erie in Carey, NS and CSX in northwest ohio, and now the Cincinnati area near the Indiana border along with a quarry in Melvin are experiencing boom times. Looks for a mess of stone trains to invade the Springfield Ohio by the IORY. The genesis of this traffic is a construction company near the Indiana border completed and asphalt plant is the reason for this growth.
