Hyrail posted these work-in-progress shots of Rice Yard on their Facebook page today.

Rice Yard is CSX's largest rail classication yard in their network. It is 4.5 miles long, nearly 1 mile wide and serves 50-70 trains daily.  

The Yard will be part of the Jesup sub that will connect into the A-Line route at Racepond.

Toys For Tots Holiday Drive

Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas.
The Depot thought we'd try having a little fun while raising money for this awesome charity.
On December 12, 2015, we want to take a group photo with as many members as possible, but to join in we ask that you make a donation of at least $1 to Toys For Tots. Our goal is $225 and The Depot will also match all donations up to $100.
We'd love to see at least at 50 of our over 200 Depot members to join us for the photo and support this excellent charity.
Can't make the photo? Please consider making a donation still to support Toys for Tots.
