Just caught that. I like the line where the developer says something to the effect that freight
Rail is not compatible with the  City's industrial plan.

This was my favorite line: "“In my opinion, these guys are railroad trolls,” Garrison said. “They want to get paid to move out of the way.”"  It's like developers don't like getting paid for their land and rights.  What a hypocrite.

Also looks like their in trouble for using the name "Polar Express" without copyright permission in other areas.  Mr. Ellis sure has a lot on his plate these days!

It looks like Ed Ellis found a new home for those tank cars that were moved off the Chicago Terminal rails recently.
