How are these getting into & out of the city?  Is Sand Patch open to stacks now?

Gary.  Read the caption, that's North Baltimore, OH, not MD.

Drove by that site on a return trip from CHM (Columbus) on biz...its HUGE.

The container cranes are similar/identical to a shipyard.

Too bad they built a berm all around it.


Its near Deshler which is a great railfanning spot, sleepy little town that usually has a lot of traffic.

They can run stacks into Baltimore (MD). Just not through the tunnel (I think), and not up the Philly Sub.

Not that that leaves a lot of places for them to go though.

What's the status on the intermodel facility they planned to build in Jessup?  Would be neat seeing double stacks on the Cap Sub.
