Remarks & Notes 
The day starts off with Iron Horse Resource- Sequatchie Valley Switching Co. rarely run ex: SP/UP MP15AC 1466 making the shovel move up the Sequatchie Branch for the USGypsum Processing Plant to switch out the south yard where a cut of outbound cars loaded with industrial size sheet-rock walls ready to be shipped out to it's customers. A lot has since change since the official buyout of the old Sequatchie Valley Railroad earlier this year, everything from the change of name, management, and crew operating. Two things that hasn't change just yet is the company's outlook on local railfans taking pictures around the railroad, and the knock off UP paint scheme that Iron Horse Resource had inherited from Sequatchie Valley Railroad, but I wonder how long will we have to wait til we start seeing the goofy John Deere paint scheme. This is truly a sign of progress, and major investment in this region, as the image of the old poor-dunk short-line railroad image of the south is fading away.
