Yep, they will load up at your friendly neighborhood coal mine, but it would be nice if someone would put out a paper mill or two.

These plants are all over the southeast. Should be easy to find on a map. Look at the huge Rayonier Paper Plant at Doctorville, GA. This plant receives the chips and uses them for paper production. You could also model the chipper plants as well... look on maps for circular stacks of logs with a crane in the middle and circular piles of sawdust and chips waiting loading along railroad lines.

Coosa, GA has the jackpot of a rail served industry - a 10 mile long branch line that ends at a coal-fired power plant, with a massive paper mill next door. Hoppers, box cars, and switching locomotives galore!

There might not be any paper mills, but there are woodchip loaders in Railworks. I know for a fact there is one in Steven's Pass, Adriana County, Majestic Falls, and a couple other routes.
