Do you know if the North run was to TC or toward Kalkaska?



Kalkaska and Elmira. There was a long string of empty cement hoppers and tanks behind Family Video last night.

I never saw the southbound today, so I can't confirm. Based on where the boxcar was blocked, it would probably have returned south with the Owosso crew. The car was before the Clare cut. Usually, any cars in front of the Clare cut will turn back south.

Might have been a pick up from the bean plant in Ithaca. They ship an occasional box car.
