Drove over CSX at Webo on I-495 today. The yard was ~ half full with mixed freight. Does this former autorack yard have a new classification function for CSX?

Also, rumor has it that Staley's, the company which receives tanks of corn syrup at Westboro Yard, has either increased it's current operation, or gotten a new contract, which has required multiple switches a day, from what I have heard.

I think Worcester and Beacon Park intermodal yards are close to capacity.It has been proposed already...only time will tell. First East Brookfield has to get running smoothly.
