It was the only daily scheduled general manifest that ran at the particular route. It was announced at the time that Norfolk Southern was going to reduce train operation out of Sevier Yard by the second quarter of 2016 due to lower traffic volumes in that area, and to strategically plan to enhance operating efficiencies, reduce costs, drive profitability, and support long term growth.
