The siding of Clay was originally named for the clay found in the area. The clay was a fire red color and, for awhile, the name of the siding was in fact Fireclay. The siding here at Clay has a permanent 12 MPH slow order on it and heavy loaded trains are not allowed through the siding. This is because the siding rests on the soft clay and the railroad doesn't want to risk a derailment.
