Orange Juice train

Is it back? I can somewhat remember reading it was done. I caught the last three cars going over the Susquehanna from Havre De Grace into Perryville the other day.

The cars are handled in a single stack CSX intermodal train as there are no longer enough cars to support its own train. I saw them southbound today going through Ashland, VA.

going through NJ the OJ train isn't combined with anything else, so somewhere south of here they are dropping the intermodal cars.

Southbound are empties (light) - Northbound are loads (heavy). For the most part, empties have always been handled as a block in Southbound manifest trains.
