D700 decent size train for going long today. CSXT 2039, 9ish BNSF covered hoppers (including a classic Cascade Green BN), 2-3 high-side gons, 7ish coils, (mostly CSX), and 3 tanks on the rear. By Hudsonville at 09:40. Tanks probably dropped in Holland.

Thanks. Ya, that was a typo. Trying to see it go east. Haven't been to GR in a minute. Last I heard, the daily eastbound departed shortly before dawn

Awesome. I take it the departure time can vary going south? Any idea if it's early or late in the day?

I think he's asking about Grand Elk. They normally arrive in GR in the late afternoon and leave in the early evening.
