While the bridge may be back in service I don't know if the railroad will gain much. South of the bridge are 2 propane distributors in North Bend who rarely get cars and Georgia Pacific in Coos Bay who has announced their closure. The only good news is that GP mill is relatively new so hopefully a new operator will take it over and ship by rail.
As far as south of Coos Bay, beyond GP the rest of the way to Coquille, there is nothing until you get to Coquille and even that is one shipper who may not even use rail anymore, Roseburg Forest Products. Even back in the SP days we'd only run down there 3 days a week normally and that was only for a few cars.
