Default Another ethanol plant closure

Just saw news the recently completed ethanol plant adjacent to RJ Corman's yard in Clearfield, PA has now closed. An almost identical situation to the recent closure of Clean Burn Fuels on the A&R in North Carolina. Future does not look good for these small plants located outside of the traditional "corn states."

Fortunately, coal traffic on the RJCP has been pretty strong, but this plant would have been a nice source of diversified traffic.
