Sounds like a lot of grain or stone cars

Edit: I watched JawTooth's video after i posted and saw it was mixed freight with quite a few box cars and gondola's

The GP15-1 makes its first haul on the lead engine going East on the Peavine to Batavia with 29 cars on the load.

Both of the GP15-1s have been down at Clare this past week dropping off full cars on the siding. First time I have seen them up close they look great going to need them to haul all the stone from Plum Run. I see something on the old Penn tracks tonight looks like NS coming to pick up these full cars maybe bringing new cars to take out east. They are idle on the tracks out west not moving been there for ten minutes or so.

Hello all, haven't been around for a month of so. Now semi retired I can now start rail fanning more. A few years back I thought that the Peavine would die off as they only have on major business the Ag and the customer at the old Ford plant with some storage.

Now the Peavine is very busy with added customers and a new one down the road will provide major revenue for the rail company. The storage business is not as strong as it was months ago but it looks like not they are storing other cars not all empty tankers.

I like the new GP 15-1 units plus they are easy to see just hope the kids don't spray paint stuff on them. Everyone would hate to see that happen.

I'm going to take a trip out east here soon follow the line all the way to Vera. Haven't been to Vera in a long time. As a young adult I would take some fishing trips out that way and would see the NS on the tracks going either east or west with long loads.

Thanks NorthStar for keeping up with the line down at Clare Yard.

Had a report today that the new Purina Plant is really starting to take shape looks like they will be ready to operate by mid spring. This will bring big business for the CCET with maybe a four or five day work load.

I see more news came out today the Ohio Rail Development Commission approved a grant for $150,000 to the CCET to provide rail service to the new Purina facility in Batavia.

These funds will be used to help construct a 1,1000 foot connecting track, the last piece of rail infrastructure need to link the CCET to the Purina facility to ensure timely, effective rail service.

More information is on the Ohio Rail Development Website.

This is great news as the Purina site will be operational by the end of next spring bringing over 500 jobs to the area and a ton of rail service to the Peavine.

I've been watching video's of CCET and haven't seen many aggregate cars. Is that business done for the season?

True of late not many aggregated cars have been moved. The stone plant on Plum Run uses these cars so does Cohen Recyclable not sure what is going on there. Cohen only does a few cars a week or every two weeks.

Grain will be a big mover now as the Ag will be shipping down plenty of grain in the next few weeks. I must say the Peavine is busy out east many projects going on getting ready for next spring.

They are just being stored for their owner and not for the CET.
