Thank you for posting CRD. Great pictures and reporting. Appreciate the update about the new Grayling Yard.

Did you happen to catch any action at the new plywood plant?

Perhaps on Tuesday, when 393 shoved across 4 Mile Rd to AJD, the boxcars could have been for Arauco.

THANK YOU for the GREAT pics of the new LSRC trackage and movements up north!! Was wondering when somebody somewhere would show some. The new yard is just to the north of 4 Mile Road--correct?? Any idea how many tracks go into the new plant?? Thanks again---all you guys have a good---and safe Thanksgiving!

Box cars would make sense. However, according to the LSRC newsletter they acquired 30 bulk head flat cars for service at Arauco. That surprised me as I thought they would go with box cars (like you saw) or center beams.
