Long Description:
Since I don't see this device listed among the existing waymarks, I decided to post it - even way out in the country where Daniel Boone's Wilderness Road traveled. The device detects trains for automatic routing by CSX - primarily coal cars, but other shipments heading to the midwest from likely the port of Charleston, SC.
