After enduring two years of unused railroad cars being stored on tracks adjacent to Kennefick Road, about 200 of them have been removed because of an increased demand for them to carry lumber and steel.

Union Pacific Railroad has 282 rail cars remaining in the Acampo area, according to spokesman Aaron Hunt.
