Interesting. Where would CSX 6415 be dragging those covered hoppers from? It appears there are no consignees on the line from there and the minimal CSX yard at Lester? I'm not from around those parts and curious about the operations.
Thanks,
Gonut

The track north of Sterling is used for car storage, and perhaps once a year for a through movement to Lester.  Also wye of power and equipment as Bob recorded.

BUT there is a chance of real trains in the future on the Cleveland Sub, with some detours from the Baltimore tunnel construction.

A few weeks ago a train in Sterling went to Lester, Ohio, but that is rare.

IIRC, the covered hoppers on the Sterling siding are not grain-related. Metallurgical-related: The contents are chemical powder loaded into trucks.
