    What? You have trains? Or do you just get railcars set out there by a railroad from time to time?

    I used to work at a yard that offloaded automobiles off of railcars. The had a little loco that had pneumatic tires and rail wheels. You got one of those?

    Cool. What do you get set out for you? Box cars? Hoppers? Gondolas?

    I'm also curious as to whether it's a big rail company or a shortline that's servicing your siding.

    There's a shortline serving the rails around here and I'm pretty stoked about that. Local action is good. They just have an old switcher they use to haul stuff up off the BNSF into the heart of Clark County. Mainly fertilizer that they offload onto trucks on a siding they call "Rye".

    They also service a couple of places up in Battle Ground. The tracks are also used for a rail excursion business.

    I receive box cars both high and low cube. I inbound from Eastern Canada and across the US. My local line is CSX and the run 2 locomotives in tandom to severice my area. Basically it starts out on a different line and gets handed off as it moves around Canada & the United States. I have the same local guys that service my park, it's nice because I know my train master, the road master, and the engineers.
