Bluffton Sunday (9-23-12)

I went past the ethanol plant on Sunday, they were moving cars in the yard. They have a switcher that looks like rrnut282's avatar. I also went by WBCR interchange with NS. They had a bunch of TILX hoppers stored there. :shock: I thought WBCR used that yard for something other than car storage. Some said GPRE (Great Plains Renewable Energy) on the side. GPRE operates the ethanol plant in Bluffton. The only "train" :x :evil: :cry: I saw was a WB Ethanol on NCD, The locomotives were NS,UP,UP. That train was crossing at 700N (MP170). I looked at the WBCR, it looks like it needs a haircut. :lol: Took pics at the Ethanol Plant, couldn't tell any thing from the road I was on.

There was construction at the ethanol plant recently, they moved most of the rolling stock to Wabash Centrals yard for temporary storage.
