There's an empty for them at St Mary's so anticipate that movement as well today.

Mostly brown BNSF cars around Lowell for the past couple of days, looks like 20 or so. Nothing new at the Ann Street yard yesterday/Friday.

MQT leader, I&M and the TP&W units trail. Short train southbound at Brohman, Michigan this morning around 11:45ish. Caught him in the way home from making a donation to the native tribe at Manistee Little River casino. Wandered around Manistee yesterday. Morton salt looks good as did the PCA plant. Cars scattered about various yards in town.
Enjoy Every Sandwich.
