Just ran across these two articles in the June 2009 issue of Virginia

"FreightCar America Inc., a Chicago based manufacturer of rail cars,
suspended operations at its Roanoke plant because of a shortfall in new orders.
About 210 workers are affected by the move."

"O'Neal Steel Inc., a welding operation based in Botetourt County, closed
its facility, with the loss of 115 jobs after FreightCar America suspended
work at its rail car manufacturing plant in Roanoke."
