Re: Shipping Bulk Cement - not on the RR?

Reflecting on my answer, I should have mentioned that the BIG HEAVY TRUCKS were flatbed trucks with the palletized loads strategically located over the rear wheels of the trailers.  The bags on the pallets were wrapped with tarps to try to keep rain off.

Yes, I knew of one when I was ~10 years old and those were BIG HEAVY TRUCKS.

Hi,
  Although not directly related to the topic of this list - I have no other good
place to ask ...

  If you have a cement plant and it is shipping bagged in box cars and bulk
in hopper cars ... how did it ship to a local Concrete plant that was not
rail served?

  It seems to me its highly unlikely that they shipped bagged cement to a
ready mix plant that wasn't on an RR.  Do you know of such a plant and
how it got/gets its bulk cement?
