Why was there railroad equipment by U.S. 74-76?

Ken Little

Q. What was all the specialized railroad equipment doing sitting on the side of U.S. 74-76 at the rock yard about halfway between Wilmington and Reigelwood.

A. A local CSX employee said this week that the equipment is no longer at the site referred to by the reader.

It likely has been moved down the line to be used elsewhere in track repair, CSX spokeswoman Carla Groleau said.

“It sounds like our regional maintenance crew is working in the area. CSX maintenance crews work their way down the railroad tracks evaluating and making repairs as needed,” Groleau said.

Depending on the need, the crew could be resurfacing, or replacing ties and ballast as they move through communities where CSX operates.

“CSX teams will work through the area as safely and swiftly as possible, and we apologize for any impacts to our neighbors,” Groleau said.


Will CSX improve the railroad crossings at Mount Misery Road and Lackey Road?

Did Grover Cleveland ever see the Maco Light?
