Troy, our Aiken operation is one whole operation with a total of 18 miles of trackage, not two separate segments as you make it seem. There are 4 active customers on that line. All which use steady rail service/traffic. You have Active Minerals, and WR Grace on the AB line and you have AGY (Aiken Glass/Owens Corning) and a Feed & Seed (Can't remember the name) on the SA Line just East of the Yard. Steve has a good track record for reactivating rail service, GRLW is a prime example of that. So I am excited to see what all he has planned for AIKR.
