How much of a hit on car loadings will the loss of the Maine operations cause (% wise - I know actual counts may not be something you want revealed)?
Why do we drive on parkways and park in driveways?

I am guessing the figures include the Bayway refinery and don't include Maine traffic. There's no way the Morris County lines produce that much traffic currently, though, to be clear, I wish the M&E success and growth.

Correct. The numbers for the MERR are not included here, and won't be because frankly I don't know what they were. Not my department!

The 8% growth was just on the Morris County branches. Bayway also grew this year, but it wasn't that much.

Well done with the traffic increase, and good forward thinking with the new facilities for shippers.
Cheers
