Remarks & Notes 
1/3rd of Aberdeen & Rockfish Railroad's locomotive roster - GP7 #205, CF7 #2486 and GP18 #300 - are seen working the unloading building for corn at the Tyton NC Biofuels ethanol biorefinery located in Raeford, North Carolina. The facility intends to showcase the use of energy tobacco as a feedstock for ethanol production with minimal modification in a corn dry mill ethanol facility. Tyton NC Biofuels will initially start its operations using corn as the primary feedstock with Aberdeen & Rockfish delivering more than a dozen cars daily for unloading and it will transition to Tyton energy tobacco as more acreage is placed under cultivation. The biorefinery will demonstrate to the existing ethanol industry the favorable economics that result from the use of Tyton energy tobacco derived sugars, and demonstrate to farmers the opportunity in growing Tyton energy tobacco. (the information on the facility is direct from the Tyton NC Biofuels)
