This was back in the early 2000s when scrap prices were much higher. Their tactic was to massively raise rates on their line, like 10 times what would be considered a market rate. When nobody decided to use their line they could petition the Interstate Commerce Commission to abandon the line, and oh we will start reclaiming the steel immediately. The sad part is that the company had done it numerous times before anyone raised a flag.
