  1. How many cars is forge hydrocarbons shipping? Looks like they take a lot of cars for the ride from sarnia too.

  2. I’m not too sure, they only dropped two tanks with no pickup, although I believe they were locked out as they sat there for almost two hrs before just dropping the cars outside of Forge’s property. I believe the head end cars are from VIP, just along for the ride.

  3. I was going to ask about that carbon black hopper as it seemed a little out of place. VIP makes it make some sense.
