There was a passing siding at Rice as well as a short spur track for 
local merchants and farmers, As a kid, I remember seeing boxcars of 
fertilizer  as well as empty pulpwood flats being set off there.

I've got a few questions rearding the now abandoned mainline that ran 
between Burkeville and Pampin via Farmville. There was a passing siding 
at Prospect.  Can anyone provide the name of each interlocking and what 
their respective milepost designation was?  There appears to have been 
a short passing siding at Farmville and possibly one at Rice as well.  
I pose the same question about those sidings to the group.  Any idea 
when they were removed from service?Jeff Hawkins
