Welcome Mingo,

I was in your neck o' the woods this past weekend, visiting for Parents' Weekend at my daughter's college. Took a drive along Hwy 7, and was saddened to see they've closed down the two "pigtailed" blast furnaces :( Oh well at least they'll still have an electric melt shop, better than nothing I guess!

Road, now there thinking about bringing the Allenport plant to the Steubenville north plant,, bad news as we run several trains a week {The C22} to deliver the cold roll. This move may make 200 jobs but will also create a loss of 3 to 400 hundred.... ISG, then Mittal, now Esmark...jeesh

Welcome aboard, Mingo. I spent some time at Mingo Junction train watching as a teenager, being a native of Cleveland. Sure sounds things have gone downhill since I was there last. :(
