Ed,

I won't say for sure; but I doubt it very much. Not unless they bought it for the sole purpose of reselling it to Ford. The Claycomo plant is reached by traversing about a mile of CB&Q branch line running northward from the CB&Q/Wabash joint trackage at Birmingham, then up another few miles of spur built and owned by the Wabash.
