Ah, thanks AARR, I was puzzled there for awhile. So a grain elevator perhaps, and then a scrap dealer as another shipper on the line. Plus sounds like a stone transload.

The Ag is Winchester Ag or WinAg. Grain elevator in Winchester OH. The scrap yard is Cohen Recycling in Macon OH, just outside of Winchester. The packaging company is Huhtamaki. They make Chinette Brand paper plates, plus cups, bowls, French fry cartons, etc., for dozens of fast food companies. Inbound paper board products, outbound scrap paper

CCET also has Mt Carmel Stabilization Group, Garick, Pavestone, Koppers, and Pilot Chemical, and do transloading at Macon. Plus store cars for TTX and a few leasing companies. Transload Facility under Construction on Round Bottom Road Road will specialize in unloading bulk stone and other flowable material. Hanson Aggregates will move their Clermont Distribution Facility to this site when done.

The Peavine is really busy this summer. NS bringing many rock cars tankers, flat cars down to Clare Yard weekly. New Transloading development is starting to take shape in Newtown. This will be a rather busy little rail line here in the next few month plus the Ag will be getting busy as well with grain cars going west bound. :)

I've tried to find the locations of their customers via satellite. I found Hanson, Winchester AG, Huhtamaki, Evans Landscaping (transload?), Pavestone (transload?) and Pilot (seems like they're on NS's line). I couldn't find Cohen Recycling, Global Partners or Koppers. I'm presuming Trinity is storage.

Can you assist me find the locations of Cohen Recycling, Global Partners and Koppers?

How do they get to serve Pilot which seems to be on NS?

Cohen is east of Cincinnati at a location called Macon US 32-US 62 crossroads. Originally was a place that got loads of lumber back in the '90s and built modular homes. They have a scrap place west of Macon on 32 around Sardinia.

Pilot should be the company they temporarily store cars for- once they are needed they get interchanged back to NS for final delivery. For reference that's basically how the "new" Rock Island has active customers down in Mississippi versus the miles of storage cars they have everywhere.
