Expanded Rail Service Cargill Watkins Glen

I hadn't been down by there in a while and just noticed that the formerly stubbed coal siding has been rehabbed and extended into the plant again. Looks like the siding into the covered area on the left is now being used exclusively for bulk loading in hoppers while the "new" siding is being used for boxcar loads. Cargill's business must be doing okay to warrant the additional siding. Good for FGLK, too.

The 2nd siding was put back into Cargill last fall, as I recall.

Thanks, Matt. I hadn't been by there since October. At time equipment and material were sitting in the old wye but it wasn't obvious what was intended.
