Thanks for the posts, Joe, Shortlines USA and troy12n.

Last week, a train crossed the Waccamaw River with not quite sure how many, their max is 7 empty centerbeam flats for Canfor Lumber, and 3 flats for Builders First Source. this week, one loaded flat went out along with the three then empty flats. Right now, two centerbeams are in the loading area, the yellow one fully loaded and the brown one beginning to be loaded on the east side, but still empty on the west side. Also, 2 empty yellow centerbeam flats are at the start of the loading track. Considering how bad the hurricane of 1999 was, with the railroad across the Waccamaw River closed for four months, recovery from this one has been relatively fast.
