Is CSX A768 - still making runs?
Author: rockymnt

Hello,
Is CSX A768 still running out of Waycross/Rice over to Jesup/Doctortown/Rayonier?  If so, how often? 
Thanks very much.

Unrelated to your question, I noticed something outside of the Rayonier plant to the west of US Highway 84.  Do you what the structure is next to the track across the street from the following address?

333 Dogwood Ext
Jesup, GA  31545

Is it an old scale house?  It is intersesting - there is a gate, and a bi-directional traffic signal.  There is also an air conditioning unit in the block house, although it doesn't appear to be used anymore.

Just curious,

Eric Lanctot

Looks like a scalehouse.  There's also a galvanized pole with what looks like a RFID reader or similar.   I'm not from that area so I have no personal knowledge about it.

It's L725 now, runs daily as far as Walthourville (Fort Stewart interchange) if they have cars for them.  Still works the Rayonier plant, but CSX lost a lot of their traffic to NS that serves the plant from the other side.  It leaves Waycross in the morning and the dispatcher normally will ask if they are "going to the mill today".

Thanks very much for the information.  I appreciate it!  I'll look for it leaving Rice/Waycross on the VR cam.
