ND&W very busy

Post by Notch 8 » Fri Sep 08, 2017 7:22 am

Work has had me in the NW Ohio area and I have gotten to follow the ND&W and this line is full of cars. I asked what the influx of traffic was and was told that Campbell Soup has ordered and additional 500 cars of tomato paste in addition to what they already use. So I'm guessing they this is going via rail and have captured more of the truck traffic. For those that don't know this line was shortened at Napoleon OH, and no longer crosses US24 and continuing to Liberty Center.

I shot these at Cecil, Oh on 9/6/2017 on my way to Toledo.

3054 was pulling a string of cars to the main line.
105 was sitting dead on the main.

What company gets the tanks cars on ND&W at Woodburn, or are they just being stored?

There were a lot of cars at NS-ND&W interchange Thurs. evening. ND&W 1603 wasn't running.

The tank cars go to Systech Environmental Corporation in Paulding Ohio and contain industrial waste that is burned for fuel for the kiln at LafargeHolcim Plant, they do the same at LafargeHolcim in Alpena MI. and Essroc Materials Inc in Logansport Indiana

Gents,

The three chem cars at Woodburn have been there for weeks. Those are not Systech cars. I live in Woodburn, and work for Lafarge/systech. If those cars were ours we would have seen them at the plant asap. Probably being stored for someone else.

On a side note cement shipments are about to get crazy this summer. Numbers will be between 10 and 20 car loads a week. That is of course dependent on our Columbus terminal tonnage, and how busy our truck business is this year. Looks like the railroad is gonna be busy!!
