The last freight ran from Channing to Wells on April 26, 1993. The reason given for discontinuing service was the track couldn't take 130 ton pulpwood cars anymore. So we continued to switch storage cars with 200 ton SD-9s, go figure. At one time we had cars stored from Channing to Alfred which is 25 miles east. We won't be shoving cars out that far anymore as the track is so bad that in places the rails are just laying in the ballast, the ties have given up the ghost.
