We’ve been moving DDG loads off the ADBF to the CIND for a couple months now as well.

Don are these blocks-unit fertilizer trains being exchanged with the HESR at Durand? I wonder if this is what CR Cabana was posting about on the DIANN that this was the reason the Ann Arbor was going to add more interchange tracks there with the IORY.

I believe that is correct that fertilizer trains are exchanged between GLC and HESR in Durand. GLC has picked up fertilizer trains from both CSX at AnnPere and AA at Osmer.

Word from a source is that IORY is building another transload in Lima along Sugar Street. Don Simon youll be happy to know that all that trackage that supplied the Ford PLANT with parts is still in intact as they all are being used as a transload. Troyer Trucking across the street from the engine terminal and this new spur also near the engine terminal deal with plastic transloading. And there is another spur to the south that also transloads stuff.

Thanks Arty.

In its DT&I days switching the Ford plant could take up to a half a shift switching cars in and out and spotting them at the proper docks.

True.

False. The lead to Ford is now the "Luckey Extension" and everything beyond the first switch north of Bible is unused and out of service.

Thanks to Metal x and North Star expanding, IORY is seeing a pickup in scrap traffic and another customer was reintroduced a few weeks ago in Cincy. Moskowitz Recycling started shipping scrap on the IORY again.

Are the signals on the I&O line up from Oakley north still operational or are they dark?

I believe that Oakley and Ridge are still CP, only Penn was switched to hand throw.

Thanks I was up north on the other side of Loveland and noticed that the pole signals were out but not bagged so thought either there was power issue or they were out of service.
