Inbound loaded grain train for Ardent Mills from CSX via Rotterdam Jct is backing off half of train on West Main Street. After that lead two units will bring 55 cars to milling for unloading (Loop Track at Milling won't hold 110 cars for unloading) About this time after two derailments on east end of West Main Street Track, repairs were never done and that's the way it exists today. Maybe CSX will see the light. . . .

I haven't seen anything moving on that track in YEARS!

A section of the track near the eastbound interlocking signal was taken out and then restored a few years ago and the CSX crews were observed working on the switch to the No.1 track a month or so ago, but no activity on this track except west of the station and the infrequent use of the Greenville Branch. The Camp track has been nicely rebuilt after the recent derailment. Maybe the same will be done to the West Main track.
