Plymouth Absopure Building/Warehouse Question

Unread post by Crow T Robot »

Back in the day the old Toys R Us warehouse in Plymouth off Haggerty Rd was used to store I think Aluminum or steel ingots/coil and did receive rail service. Drove by the building a few days ago and saw the Absopure sign out front I noticed the switch was still intact so is this still getting serviced? Also is Plastipak still getting rail service?

The short lived aluminum ingot business is the last rail business I know of.

I haven't been by Plastipak in several years.
