As of right now, only one gp-18 has been moved up there.

My opinion is just that, my opinion and in no way represents the company I work with.

The engineer also told me that one of the two U-Boats here are for sale..... supposedly one is sold and the other has a potential buyer. Love these rumors......

Yap on the trainorders website says traffic way of on the W&N/Octoraro lines. Trains running up to 50 cars at times.
Can anyone tell me what commodity this is, where all this traffic is going, and how it relates to a shutdown pipeline in Chester county, as mentioned on TO.
I did see pix of tank cars on the Avondale pad. Used to be only thing unloaded there was feed for farmers.
