Question about the Lincoln Secondary

Unread postby Eric Berger » Thu Jan 03, 2019 2:47 pm

Yesterday (2 January 2019,) I saw the Glass Man headed south past Inkster Road at about 1415 EST. I noted quite a few covered hoppers. In addition, I also saw a few center beam lumber cars mixed in.

A couple of weeks ago, I'd seen him pass by and I saw a center beam car that time too; I didn't post anything about it at the time because I thought I was seeing things, or perhaps that it was a Railbox that I'd mistaken, as I was on the job and was preoccupied with that...and I was also about half a mile away when he'd passed by.

So, my question is --- who along the Secondary would be getting center beam lumber cars? I'm not aware of any businesses along there that would get those.

Thanks!

Could be a warehouse further up the secondary that gets traffic.

Car goes to Guardian Glass where it is loaded with huge plates of glass that is sent else where to be cut. Movement started a couple of months ago

Wow, glass transported on an open car as opposed to a box car. I'm sure it makes sense but I'm still a little surprised.
