Greetings All!  This is Patricia and I am Traveling for History!!

I filmed today's video,, down at the Waterfront in Burlington, VT.  Those tanker cars called my name.  You'll see multiple switch tracks, a lever mechanism, which does the switching,   tracks side-by-side, extra rail tracks(!) stacked (for installation?)
and LOTS of tanker cars...some up close!! 

I had never heard of Thiele-Kaolin, whose name was on the side of some of those cars.  Here is some information on them from their website:

"A privately-held company founded in 1946, Thiele Kaolin Company® is one of the world's leading sources for processed minerals. With facilities in North America and Europe, Thiele mines, processes, and delivers a wide range of kaolin and silica products."
