THE ENVIRONMENTAL CLAPTRAP HURTS PEOPLE AND STIFLES JOB GROWTH…ISN’T THAT OBVIOUS?
Lines and lines of empty hoppers parked in Southwest Virginia. This is looking more or less southward into Dante Yard. We were moving from Scott County into Dickenson County and back and saw a lot of these idle units. Anecdotal reports indicate that they’ve been there for a considerable time (several weeks or so). We were seeing both CSX and N&S (and some old Southern and Norfolk & Western units, too).
