Oh man it is nice to see Wexford is up and running!!! Definitely gonna have to film the Western District once a somewhat reliable pattern of operation is established.
Thanks for the pics KC.

I missed seeing them leave Cadillac today but while watching them switch this morning it looked like they had 3 empty centerbeams headed to McBain.

Any idea where those 24 TSBY hoppers are? Wondering in heading to Beacon in TC with the other 10 for scrapping.

Looks like some of the TSBY hoppers are spotted on the northern leg of the wye in Walton Junction. There are also 4 or 5 sitting in North Yard along with 2 of the double door Ann Arbor boxcars. Also a string of tanks at Walton.
