New Customer DLRR

Postby SemperFidelis » Mon Aug 08, 2016 6:46 pm

Just noticed today, whilst stopping to re-up my whiskey supply, that a customer has moved into the building along Green Ridge Street in Scranton that once housed a cardboard company. For a while, the tracks were blocked by a pile of debris, but apparently sometime in the not too distant past, a company moved in and is recieving boxcars.

Any idea of the company name? What they ship or recieve?

Apparently Schoenberg Salt, already a rather active customer for the DLRR, bought the building and is taking advantage of rail service at the location.

Google Maps shows a Schoenberg Salt in Carbondale, between 8th Ave and the river, next to the tracks . Expanding?

I've not seen a car at the Carbondale location in years. I think they may have just switched locations, though I can't say that definitively.

I see they also have a current 211 Birch St Scranton address for 2016-2017 salt pickups,

but it doesn't look like rail there from on-line maps. Maybe transloading now?
