    Curious ,

    Which trucking companies haul maintenance parts such as wheels, traction motors and locomotive engines for Union Pacific Railroad, CSX and/or BNSF Railroad direct? Could Mercer actually be one of those carriers?

    A lot of the smaller stuff moved via LTL, mind you smaller is relative here. During my time at R&L and Carolina Freight Carriers saw many traction motors, draft gear, couplers, truck side frames, springs, brake shoes, and car body parts moving through the system
