Paper from this mill probably is heavy, but much of the stuff from the mills around Green Bay WI is fairly light. "Sanitary paper" the STCC classification. Kleenex, toilet paper from Kimberly-Clark, Fort Howard if they're still around. At least it was when I was with the WI DOT back in the 70's. Not much revenue for railroads when a box car cubes out at 12 tons. Problem for the car ferries and the Ann Arbor RR. And most of the cars came back empty.
