Chicopee, MA Operations

Postby Cadet57 » Thu Feb 24, 2011 1:05 pm

Hello, I am currently working on a project involving a former Chicopee industrial plant and am curious if anyone has any information on rail operations to/from the Fisk Rubber/Uniroyal plant. It is my understanding that they had their own line and possibly their own switcher. Any other information is much appreciated, thank you.

I am interested in this area of B&M operations also. The Uniroyal plant was shuttered in 1980, and received inbound carloads of Carbon Black for making rubber. They probably also received inbound coal at one time for the power plant there.
