Captain Mine IL ???
Author: scraphauler

Anyone know what Captain Mine IL is - what they load? I'm guessing it's some sort of sand/aggregate facility. It's on UP, looks like may be served out of Chester IL south east of St Louis. I've got a couple of lost cars that drifted down that way and am curious what they may end up loaded with (UP couldn't/wouldn't tell, go figure) Put on Eastern Board too.

It is, or was, a coal mine. Jointly served by UP and IC, between Chester and DuQuoin, IL.
