WPCA51 ran the loaded 780 coal train from Beesley's Point today. This is the second train exporting coal from the closed plant and could possibly be one of the last times coal will ever be moved on the line again.

Yesterday, 9/19 was the final loaded Coal train to depart the power plant - NS 780 operated by CA-51. The consist was 63 loads and 47 empties, of the 110 car set that has been bouncing back and forth this year.

I was told the north pole. Santa uses it for stocking stuffers.

Here is the last coal train that will ever run on the Beesleys, at the dismal remains of the once very busy Williamstown Jct.-
