    re the statement about needed transportation. I don't think anyone loads directly onto a train. There's 2 main issues, from what I have read.

    How far do they have to drive their trucks to get to the train, and where do those roads run? Very heavy trucks, and bridges, and local ordinances, can be problems.

    Then there is the infrastructure at the train yard to load the railcars.

    It's funny (to me) how there can be issues in a business that never show up on a Annual rept, or a discussion, that clearly limit the entry of new competition. Access to transportation is a very huge issue!

    That explains the $4 pop, and reinforces what everyone but the SEC knows, insiders knew and traded on that news before it became publicly available.
