Since you mentioned Reheis Chemical, I thought I would share one of the few interesting bits of paper that I have in my collection. It is the "Daily Yard Check" for the yard at Murray Hill, NJ, from 2 July 1973 to about 31 October 1973. It appears this yard was small and mostly held freight cars going to Reheis Chemical, since most of the pages have that notation. Anyway, it is an interesting glimpse into what sort of freight cars and traffic was going in and out of a particular industry about 35 years ago.

Anybody out there modeling this section of line and Reheis Chemical?

Did the EL use this 'yard check" form for every small yard they had?

Was there some other form that was used for interchange with short lines, for example?

Just wondering.
