Dow Chemical Plant Switch Job
by David Butts.
"In late August 2011 I had the opportunity to watch and photograph the
Georgia Northeastern Railroad (GNRR) handle a switch job at the Dow Chemical Plant
in Marietta, Georgia. This provided some great learning on the art of prototype switching
and freight car forwarding that I would like to share."
