The B&P has delivered approx. 20 cars to the A&A this week.

Business is good this January!

That is excellent news!

How has both the freight and passenger business been this summer? Are they getting cars from the B&P 1 or 2 times per week?

^The A&A got 10+ cars from the B&P the other day. A pic was posted to the A&A Facebook group.

I do not know anything about how the passenger train is doing.

2017 is starting off well for the A&A.

The B&P dropped off 15/16 cars last week. One load was lumber.

I have never seen a load of lumber in one of their trains. Nice catch!

The last time I checked, the lumber was unloaded on the main line, under the Hwy. 39 overpass near the interchange. A forklift unloads a little from each side until the car is empty. The lumber is then trucked to the lumberyard.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the lumber dealer is located in Yorkshire (?)

The B&P dropped off 12 cars for the A&A this week.

Two were lumber cars which were unloaded under the Rt 39 bridge at the B&P interchange.

Sixt Lumber in Yorkshire/Chaffee.

If they get boxcars, they are unloaded at the Arcade wye,

The 80-tonner returns to Arcade this morning with 7 empties in a steady rain after an early morning run to North Java.

#112 had just finished switching around coaches for a 1pm passenger train with #18 today.
