This is correct. The switch to the sand plant spur is located west of
Mapleton, near Mill Creek. Many of the WNFR cars are in sand sevice from
here (this is or was a U.S. Sand & Silica plant) to the Corning Asahi plant
near State College, via CR interchange at Tyrone with the Nittany & Bald
Eagle RR. I do not know what other customers might be receiving these cars
from the Mapleton plant.
