From author Charles Geletzke Jr.: "This diamond permitted the NYC (PC-CR) to access the Monsanto Chemical plant on the east side of West Jefferson Avenue and the Chrysler Chemical Plant jointly with the D&TSL. This facility received box cars loaded with automotive brake shoes, chemicals in drums, and tank cars of chemicals and automotive wax."
