Close, not but quite. They turned at Ogihara west of town (Thai-Summit) after setting out a couple of empty gons. Was there when they arrived and stayed until they went back west. 16 cars in the plant now, 7 loaded, but they have been hording them since late August not allowing D708 to pick them up. First part of August they had as many as 27 gons, but they were not loading many, preferring to sent it out by truck. Those people are an odd bunch, but they must know what hey are doing. For the second time in three years, they are in the midst of putting another HUGE addition.

Ah thank you. I didn't hear them stopping there and just figured they were in Howell switching. I saw a number of cars on the interchange at AnnPere at least :)

That X369 that ran from Walbridge to GR on Sunday and terminated at Wyoming, with Chicago traffic, I wonder if those cars were part of that jumbo Q327 last night? (How tomorrow moves!) Interesting about the Q334 scheduled for today...

FASCINATING! Should have went to the union meeting last nite. Two trips into GRP were not in the offing yesterday though. Boating and sunset on the lake WAS! I have different priorities now I guess.
