At Hinman yard in Battle Creek, NS 5339 tied down, NS 5272 and 5823 (train B34?) appeared to be just arriving from the west with several CH's and some Thiele tank cars. Thiele tanks presumably for or from WestRock (ex-RockTenn) paper plant. In recent months, I have seen them several times all the way into Gearhart (ex-Botsford) in Kalamazoo during the day, previously I believe they only did the BC-Jackson turn during the day and did not run west.

About 2 hours ago, NS 5272 leads 5823 east thru Battle Creek with 6 ADM tanks and 9 CH, plus one odd car I have not seen on NS here before, a brown high side gon covered with a tarp, MWCX 101688. I assume they were returning to BC from Kalamazoo, is this a regularly scheduled daytime train now? Is it still the B34, which has been the symbol for the daytime BC-Jackson turn, or does it get a different symbol? The B57 night time local out of BC/Hinman yard seems to running as usual. I have not seen the B33 Jackson-K'zoo-Jackson train very often, but I may just be missing it. A little harder to catch these with the new "no Horn" rule thru BC, and no scanner while I'm working. :x

A little before 4 am, a late B33 headed west thru Battle Creek toward K'zoo with NS 3297, 3035, and 3049 pulling about 62 cars, mixed but mostly steel coils. Then a short time later the B57 followed west with NS 5337 and 5272 running light, presumably headed to pick up in Augusta.
