Does anybody know what's going on at Kerry in Norwich? They are doing work on the backside of the plant along the railroad tracks.Looks like they may be putting in a siding for rail service.

They're not putting in a railroad siding, I went by there yesterday and saw them working on the roof.Wishful thinking on my part.

NYSW doesn’t own the Utica line track and rarely runs trains on it. NYSW could easily prosper with this track out of service for the long run.
