I have been noticing of late that the I&O has been moving plenty of product though Madisonville up north and back again in the afternoon. I even hear the I&O in the wee hours of the morning say like 5:00 a.m. They must be making some major money on that line.

I have been hearing some rumors of late that CSX wants to take over the old B&O line the one that goes from Oakley north east. CSX all of the sudden has interest in the line may buy the I&O line out. Where is Midland Sub? If anyone knows he would.

Bad rumor Midland Sub agrees old retired guys kind of reaching for something that isn't true.

Midland Sub how many trains are running on the I&O out of Cincinnati east these days? The yard over by the old Walmart is packed most of the time. I was heading down 71 last night and one was heading east towards the yard

I noticed tonight that Rencome tower must have had a fire or lightning hit the building. I only caught it out of the corner of my eye but it looked like the roof and was black and the windows at the top of the building were black like there was a fire.

Unofficial word out of the WCH area from a source is that a Menards Distribution Center will be setting up shop just south of the Blue Grass Farms area but it wont be considered part of the BGF/ Fayette County Economic Development project, Pretty sure that Southern Yellow Pine will probably be shipped in from the south via Cincinnati. Not sure what will come from the north.

Superior Carriers has located a liquid transloading facility in Junction Yard in Springfield. And two customers have come online shipping out scrap and they are Cohen Recycling and Topre America.

It is actually just south of Jeffersonville near the truck stop, on the East side of the tracks south of the Blue Grass Farms container yard

They did take him then decided to drop him back to earth. Guess he was a pain up there as well!

I witnessed an Ann Arbor Railroad train sitting south of Milan a couple weeks ago. On this train were a couple IORY covered hoppers. My speculation is that the IORY is using these hoppers to take DDG to the feed plant on the GLC in Owosso, Mi. Can anyone confirm that this might be the case?

Wrong. IORY/NOKL cars are in fertilizer service along with some CRGX and PRAX cars. Loaded on the CIND and interchanged to AA, though I don't know where they go from there. Every now and then we get CSXT cars out of Cincy for the AA as well.

GLC has a few small fertilizer dealers but they also have been handling more overhead traffic for HESR including big blocks and unit trains of fertilizer for Saginaw, Bay City and locations on HESR in the thumb.

DDG from both Valero and the Lima plant go to Cincy and the CIND by rail. G&W is smart enough to not use the old IORY/NOKL cars to move ddg as you literally beat the cars to death to get them empty. The mash is exported to mostly China and Turkey.
