Clymer coal heading for Strawberry Ridge is still basically a once-a-week operation.
A seven-day-a-week shuttle is now in place between Cherry Tree and Bigler. Basically, the Rosebud's Stifflertown Mine is shipping raw coal by rail to Rosebud's cleaning facility in Bigler. 40-50 cars loaded in the morning at Stifflertown, three SD40 variants pull it to Clearfield, where more are added for the uphill run to Bigler. Empties are returned to Cherry Tree/Stifflertown either that evening or the next early, early morning.
Ethanol? I believe that's a Cresson-Clearfield operation. The tracks down to Cresson aren't accumulating any rust.
