The Ann Street yard is now mostly empty and only one or two around Lowell? Although I did not check south of town; didn't want my pizza to get cold and now it's dark!

At 1945 hrs yesterday, MQT SB road freight was tied down just north of Kent City with a pair of SD40-2s and a yellow Geep and a fairly lengthy train. I think 3406 was the leader.

At the GM plant, S.O. Lansing this morning was one CP covered hopper in the middle of a long line of auto-racks on a siding. Looked like those frequently seen on the GRE in Lowell. Either mis-routed, being placed elsewhere on the CN, or GM was making breakfast for their employees!

I'm reading at MichiganRailroads.com from a number of posters that a windmill train is expected on HESR east of Saginaw

Lsrc looked to be tying a train down just north of 4 mile rd in grayling. Lead unit was in prime, 1162 I believe with 2 blue gp's behind it. Good size train as it stretches down to ajd 1515
