Which shortline serviced them? Was it HESR, or Lake State? If it was HESR, then, maybe the takeover from RailAmerica to Watco made some kind of difference as to how many carloads were expected of Rifkin annually. Watco runs a pretty tight ship. I believe if Lake State had the contract to service them, they may have continued rail service. Lake State has a reputation of being customer aggressive. A good bet that is the reason they've been so successful. At any rate, it is too bad that another customer elected to halt service. And, once rail crossings have been paved over, the story for any further service is like the last chapter of a good novel. THE END!
