There is certainly room to grow up there. Several locations that used to be rail served, and land to build nearly anything. I'm waiting to receive information on the official start up date, and operational plans. I feel like they will be in the market for another 4 axle at some point, as 3 locomotives to cover the shell turn, along with the Marietta operations will not be enough.
