Bye, bye Bay Coast
 
The Bay Coast RR on the Delmarva Peninsula is ceasing operations at the end of May 2018. The Delmarva Central RR (Carload Express) will expand its southern terminus from Pocomoke City to Hallwood, but it is believed this may be extended to Parksley at some point.

The southern portion in the Norfolk area (Little Creek) will reportedly be operated by the Buckingham Branch RR, but there is no STB filing at this point for that portion.

The Bay Coast is the former Eastern Shore RR, most widely known for operating a carfloat between Cape Charles, VA and Little Creek. Carfloat operations were ended a few years ago.

STB filing for the north end:
