Though not a very long article, some interesting little tidbits here on the amount of traffic projected and primary cargo moving between the Inland Port at Cordele, GA and the Port of Savannah. I naturally assumed the traffic was mostly imports, but looks like a nice amount of exports, as well.
Nikos, any idea if they plan on running the east end more frequently because of this traffic or breaking it off into a dedicated train? 600 containers a week is a pretty substantial chunk of traffic to combine with a 3-day a week local, it would seem.
Regardless, this appears to be blossoming into a really nice move for the Georgia Central and the Heart of Georgia. This has definitely breathed life into the east end of the HOG, which hasn't had much traffic east of Cordele historically. It's too bad that move seems to run at night, unless the long days of summer will see some of it still with good photographable daylight.
