A RJ Corman switcher hauling supplies to their yard.

A few years ago either the NS or CSX had about a dozen full coal hoppers slide down an embankment in Columbus dumping their loads on the street. They brought in RJ Corman to clean up the mess and rebuild the tracks.

Nice. I remember when they started operating rail lines in addition to cleaning up wrecks. If I recall correctly, they were based in Kentucky...

I think it is their engines that I see on the south side of Aurora, IL. They are used to switch local industries that feed into the BNSF at the west end of the famous "race track" 3-track mainline. I'm guessing that BNSF doen't want to bother with switching these local plants and Corman saw an opportunity?
