    PPG

    Another shot of PPG in the 70's. Better shot of the yard and the line heading towards the Mississippi. You can also see the PPG tracks that cross Plattin Creek to their sand mine at the upper right of the picture. I don't know when PPG stopped using this mine for the source of silica, or if they ever did, but I know they also got sand a few miles up the line at Ludwig. The shots I posted of the covered hoppers derailed came from there.

    PPG plant map

    PPG plant map which doesn't show the mainline on it. The main runs accross the lower right of this page, and the Frisco also had a yard that was next to the one shown here, seperated by a fence.
    There was also another trestle across Platin Creek that led to a sand mine which isn't shown on this map. But you can see the line running up to it.
