I filmed today’s video, https://youtu.be/JOQPtWfaGcQ, down at the Waterfront in Burlington, VT. Those tanker cars called my name. You’ll see multiple switch tracks, a lever mechanism, which does the switching, tracks side-by-side, extra rail tracks(!) stacked (for installation?)
and LOTS of tanker cars…some up close!!
I had never heard of Thiele-Kaolin, whose name was on the side of some of those cars. Here is some information on them from their website:
“A privately-held company founded in 1946, Thiele Kaolin Company® is one of the world’s leading sources for processed minerals. With facilities in North America and Europe, Thiele mines, processes, and delivers a wide range of kaolin and silica products.”
