Re: Loose car coal customers

Saw a single carload of coal in Eastbound Q326 today. It was in a steel hopper, so it was not a power plant load that had been bad ordered and set out (I’ve seen a handful of those lately on Q326). I presume this is coal for a heating plant somewhere. Who still gets coal a carload at a time in Mich...

Re: Huron & Eastern 3868

I actually unexpectedly saw HESR 3868 today, headed west solo, crossing M-52, just south of M-46. Terrible picture, but I barely had time to turn around and park when I saw the headlight approaching from the east as I was traveling south. This would be the MMRR, a couple miles west of Paines. There...

Huron & Eastern 3484 & 3485

Huron & Eastern Locomotives #3484 #3485 are out of service reported that 3484 & 3485 might be going to TPW Railroad after they fix them but with the way the railroad changes all the time I have no idea what is what. But 3484 & 3485 are out of service right now.

Re: Bay City , Midland, Saginaw and Flint

The HESR yard was pretty well loaded with cars. Most of the yard tracks at the north end were filled with cars. Tank cars, hoppers and some gons made up the majority of what filled the yard. The engine area had the following locomotives that I could see. Did you see the old GTW transfer caboose (CM...
