Yep, just saw it on the siding. They left TC with 2 empty center beam cars after dropping the load at Amerhart. So let's see how long it takes that other empty gondola to get to the GLC. I assume NS to AA to GLC?

If yesterday it was at Air Line Junction (Toledo), it will take about a day or two for AA to take the gon to Osmer, and at Osmer it could sit for a while, but not more than another day or two before GLC picks it up. The next day, it goes north to Clare, and soon after from Cadillac to TC. I'd say about a week, give or take.

I snapped a picture of the gon at Beacon yesterday, but had trouble with the upload. But got it to work today. The car is further South than where they usually spot them.

Wow, I might actually be pretty close to my "one week from Toledo" prediction!

Hmmm, another box car. Amerhart, or the mystery Cadillac destination that the last box car went to? And still a mystery?

Isn't there a place in Marion that gets fertilizer in by boxcar once or twice a year from the team track? I recall 2 or 3 loads last spring.

True, but someone posted destination being Cadillac for the last car. Maybe AAScalerunner can get a car number for RED.:)

North Yard was switched again this morning. Noticed a boxcar in North Yard last night, but it was surrounded by tanks and standing water so I couldn't get a good look at it. After today's switching the road # is the one that came in last week (HPJX 758004). Didn't see another box sitting anywhere. I wonder if maybe the feed place is receiving something in boxes.

A post on the other site reported a Petoskey run today.

UpNorth at MichiganRailroads.com posted that GLC brought six plastic pellet cars to Petoskey today (yes, on a Saturday).

Should have an empty center beam in Williamsburg to pick up, a load to pick up from Beacon, and an empty to drop off at Beacon.

TC Brent- did they bring anything other than an empty gondola with them (such as a box car or center beam)?
