There's enough traffic hanging in Huntsville yard lately in spite of the fact that there's not a tank to be found since the closure of Stepan Chemical in Longford Mills.

  1. Good to know. Visiting the Huntsville Yard has been on my bucket list of places to go to for years :)

  2. When Stepan closed they cut the service to 2 days a week (Tuesdays and Fridays) and crewed the train from the spareboard at Mac Yard. The local customers remained, those being Kimberly-Clark at the north end of town, KWH Pipe (now Uponor)at the north end of the yard and Panolam down at Martins. Since then a “new” customer has been added, that being the Stella-Jones pressure-treating lumber facility in South River and the service has been increased to 3 days/week with a regular crew.

  3. Do happen know to which industries train 595 currently serves? I’m surprised that the Huntsville yard wasn’t abandoned for I thought that it was mostly used for storing traffic coming to and from Stepan chemicals.

    Nice catch!

  4. I’d say I noticed 595 traffic dropping off around a couple of months ago. There were a few more trips happening sporadically for a few weeks then nothing that I’ve seen or heard going by the homestead lately.

  5. When did they close, Wayne?
