The rumors about this facility are false.

Effective immediately, there is to be no more contact with Norfolk Southern and/or any of its subcontractors, vendors, etc. until further notice.

General planning for our Department to prepare for the increasing prevalence of ethanol in transportation is OK...provided there is no specific effort directed towards this 'notional' facility in Alexandria.

Stated more directly, please stand down.

Appreciate all the effort placed into this so far, I feel confident it will be put to good use in the future.

Please advise me as to when your going to meet with the rail people in regards to the Ethanol station that is being built off of Eisenhower Ave.  We (suppression) would like to be involved in the planning stage so we can put together a comprehensible operations in case of an incident.  As I mentioned to Bob, I would like to include a captain from 208, 202, training and a line B/C in the meetings with you and the rail people.  From what I understand, this station is to open in April of 08, if this is the case we need to fast track this so we are ahead of the game prior to the station going into service.
