The Columbus & Chattahoochee Railroad started it's first day of operations today, running roughly 75 cars from Columbus GA to Marht, AL with two SD40-2's and two 4 axle units to be assigned to the Mead paper mill there.

An interesting fact- Genesee & Wyoming Industries is a co-owner of the Finger Lakes Railway. (Farmrail and FGLK President Mike Smith are the other owners.) FGLK is rather unusual for a G&W operation because most of its locomotives were manufactured by GE.  
 
I spent a nice spring day there a few months ago. Among other things, I saw a recent acquisition- a U23B purchased from the Conway Scenic RR.  
 

 
FGLK has been busy this year. This included a soybean transload operation in its main yard,

After taking a look around the yard, I headed south and caught HW2 as it crossed State Route 14.

After the HW2 arrived at the US Salt facility, FGLK #2307 switched a few cars and then took the train southbound along the shore of Seneca Lake.

FGLK HW2 switches the Cargill facility. Salt is the main source of traffic on this part of the RR.
