Yesterday, as usual, the Interstate Railroad Committee went into Executive Session, after which I left Loris, SC.

Took some not ready for prime time low rez, small file size photos of the train in Loris, I had previously mentioned. Closeups of individual cars will look better, although the clouds in the sky look good.

At first thought some of the boxcars were the same ones I had gotten on Super 8 vid tape, probably in late 2005, after the CSRR locomotives had put a train onto the CSX runaround track, but after seeing the Loris train up close, don't think so.

I'd think the Loris train is a storage train. Since my job is inventories, my wildest guesses usually turn out very accurate when I do an actual count.

First guess was 20 boxcars and one hopper car, but might revise it down by a few cars.

First photo is looking north, going out of Loris, and second photo is looking south, back toward Loris.
