Today, I got my copy of RailPace (OK, Ok, I know - still, I like it).
A article mentioned that Brazilian pulp company Fibria Celulose S.A. is relocating it's North East US distribution center from Baltimore to Philadelphia, specifically to the Tioga Marine terminal. Once I learned about this, I was able to find some press releases on-line.
There is a bit of a mention of what upgrades are planned in general terms ("the infrastructure improvements 'will transform Tioga terminal into a premier wood pulp terminal,' with 397,000 square feet of warehouse space, 22 railcar spots, additional on-terminal storage of up to 30 railcars, and multiple truck docks"), but I am not sure if specifics have been hashed out. Can't find any maps (certainly NOT on the PRPA website it seems) - anyone have more details about these terminal upgrades besides what's in the Philly.com press release (which is repeated on a number of sites).
