First Enter, Now Exit Sandman

After years of residency in Taylor Yard, the fracking sand loading facility is gone…. The rumor is that garbage will be taking its place…. Not the traditional household-type garbage but rather building materials, plaster and stuff like that…. That’s the rumor and it hasn’t been validated yet, but what is certain is that the sandman is gone.

A pneumatic tractor trailer takes on a load of frac sand while a small trackmobile moves sand hoppers around Taylor Yard on January 10, 2016. Although the scale that the truck is resting on is still in place, the sand loading facility has moved away…. The green EMP containers show Taylor Yard’s main purpose and future.
