As of November 30, 2014, this location is still active. The majority of the area is a wood planing mill which is still rail served. Several empty bulkhead flats were on the siding inside the yard. Beyond the lumber mill at the end of the siding where a number of oil storage tanks as well as propane tanks. Not sure if this business was still active.
