Y121, the Holland local, had a busy day in Zeeland. They emptied Zeeland Lumber's spur and setoff two loaded centerbeams. They also picked up two covered hoppers from Vanden Bosch and setoff one BNSF covered hopper.

Tier4GEVO, I love these long reports. They really give a good snapshot for how the CSX lines are currently functioning in SE Michigan. You must be very patient!

For this one:
12:05 PM
NB to WB CSX Q506-30
CSXT CW40-9 #9015
CP ES44AC #8863
132 cars long.


Where would a WB 132-car train be going? I though no trains were running between Grand Rapids and Flint right now?

Just a typo. Q506 goes NB to EB at Plymouth and runs to Detroit.
