 OPERATIONS ON THE PCN
 
This map shows the general operational layout of the PCN.  The PCN mainline runs north-south between Point Comfort, TX and Lolita, TX, with the headquarters being in Lolita.  The distance is approximately 13 miles.  In Point Comfort, railcars (covered hoppers) at the Alumininum Company of America's (ALCOA) refining operations are loaded with aluminum oxide and shipped north to Lolita.  At Lolita, trains are created and then routed over Union Pacific tracks to various points north and east, with the primary destination being the ALCOA smelting operations at Rockdale, TX.
