No problem, Joe. CM-- the Clean Burn Fuels plant is on the A&R. Not at all related to the ACWR, whose business is better than ever. A lot of the ACWR's growth seems to be at the expense of the WSSB, especially with the ethanol traffic.

The Clean Burn bit made it into the thread because there was talk of ACWR selling the A&R a couple of GP40-2Ls at one point. As for the A&R, they definitely took a bit of a hit, mainly through investment in track upgrades between Fayetteville and Dundarrach, plus the lease of two SW1500s from GATX. Hopefully that wasn't a long term lease they signed, and they can ship those away. They definitely don't need them at this point.
