Those coal hoppers are gone again...

I had the opportunity to travel to Caro yesterday, and on the way back I came down M-15 from Vassar to Millington. Once again, the old NYC line was devoid of all those coal hoppers that have been stored there a couple of times in the last 2 years. This is good, because it kinda' tells me that the coal industry is picking back up somewhat. Last fall, they vanished for a few months, only to return this past spring. I don't expect Millington elevator to receive any rail service this fall, since they haven't had any in the last 2 years, but surprises can happen. I'll keep a watch on them during the next few months.
