I know they get grain from Canada. Until the NWP started again, these mills were shipping the grain to Roseville or somewhere, then trucking it to their locations (Petaluma and Santa Rosa). I bet they don't miss doing THAT! I don't know about grain coming from Dixie, maybe those cars were used by another road or leased. Maybe someone else knows about that. Hopefully this somebody in the know will chime in with their two cents.
