On Friday 28 November on the tracks next to US 13 in Princess Anne, MD I saw a southbound trackmobile pulling a single hopper. There were around six hoppers parked at the silos there, as well as four tankers parked at the propane facility to the north. I don't remember seeing any of those when I passed though the previous Thursday.
I drive past there daily and every other Saturday.

, loads in were 6 cars every 2 days, about a month ago it tapered off to 5 or 6 every 3 days.
The Mountaire feed mill takes loads in roughly once a week. The Trackmobile belongs to Mountaire. Tysons Food also has a Trackmobile at their Snow Hill feed mill. The number of loads in drops off in the fall as the local harvest makes up the difference. All of the livestock feed grown on the Eastern Shore remains on the Eastern Shore. The grain hoppers shipped in from elsewhere make up the difference needed for the poultry industry.
