In the interesting car department, noted a two-tone PAN-AM Railways boxcar, a Southern Pacific-lettered boxcar, a flexi-TTX autorack, and the two loads of power poles, not the typical utility height ones on single cars but the longer-distance transmission style ones requiring buffer flats.

Those will likely go to the GLC, bound for an industry in McBain.

Why would they load scrap only half way? I would think it would be better to load them all the way! :lol:

Q38520 with 7109? leading is passing Green Oak.
Pretty sure I heard somebody else's horn ten minutes earlier, (K5LA, heard the approach and pass) but if there was somebody, they didn't say anything. Same voice on the radio as K808 again.

442 axles, 6350 feet.

Horns at South Lyon. I'm in class at the moment. Sounds like a westbound.
