Seems I recall couple years back Grand Elk had a scale test car going back to Elkhart on road train. How many scales are on the Elk that need testing 1 track?
Non it was going to the GRE

Re: GRE Amway yard

2019 maps shows about a dozen cars in the yard. A mix of hoppers and tanks. I know a couple of years ago they were getting a few hoppers via GDLK to GRE.

Rumor is G&W won't renew their contracts for the MQT or the MS in 2024, anyone else hear this?

Think you mean Grand Elk? Thats what joins at 421.
No, the Elkhart and Western is also at 421. A NS local runs their cars out to them. They have been getting long strings on boxcars lately.

Re: Elkhart, Ind.

So, if the switch to the E&W is now a hand-throw and outside the limit of CP-421, does the NS need to get permission from the Grand Elk to go 300 feet on their line, reverse the switch, and bring the cars to the E&W interchange, then repeat the process on the way out? GDLK doesn't own that far down...

Re: GDLK Operations

Somebody on Facebook reported that 7030 & 3534 were being sold and moved? Any reliable info on this? As reliable as what filters down from Watco/GDLK management to the employees. The 3834 said to be getting a "Dash 3" electrical cabinet. The 7030 they are thinking age and condition will relegate it...

Re: GDLK Operations

IP and Alliance Sheets get 50ft boxcars normally. Also J Rhett, Great Lakes and Bluelinx get boxcars in, as well as MSO for the packaging plant in Sturgis. Most customers get cars from all three interchange points (NS, CN and CSX) so boxcars will travel the entire line.

Wow, could this really happen?

"Moreover, the exec team crafted a plan to upgrade all of Pioneer’s track to a Class I standard. Work is progressing and might take three to five years to complete at all the short lines, says Yeros."
Could be class I track is good for 10 MPH and hazmat haulage.
