I am pretty sure the "new" WMI hauled one car load for Hanson's and they then quit using rail service.

Nice photo! What the heck happened to the roof of the boxcar?

I never did get a shot of the old NW2u #100...

After viewing the new video showing all the new customers and reading the recent STB documents filed by the Lake Cora people, I am wondering what it would take to rebuild past Lake Cora?

Concerning the box car roof, somewhere it encountered a hard impact and the load bounced up hitting the roof.
