Surprised you didn't see them today Patriot. Went east around 2:30 pm with 2 Dow cars for Amway and 13 for King! Was going about 2 when he passed my work.

Return trip by here at 5 pm. No visual.
This is my life. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

If this is a problem get used to it.

10:10 EST LOOKED LIKE THE GDLK WAS PULLING THAT STRING OF CH'S OUT OF FISHER THIS AM. THEY HAD 44TH ST IN WYOMING BLOCKED FOR A LONG TIME. WAS CAUSING A TRAFFIC JAM BOTH DIRECTIONS. DID NOT SEE IF IT WAS ROAD POWER OR THE LOCAL POWER. THE HEAD END WAS ABOUT HALF WAY BETWEEN 44TH AND 50TH.

Z151 heading up the hill thru Comstock Park @12:45 with a large train. Wondering why the power was parked near the Delta Plex and not Wyoming Yard?

CSX generally frowns on MQT leaving their engines on CSX property. Turner St. next to the Delta Plex is the property line between MQT and CSX.

Kind of dark, but looked like a line of hoppers for King on one track and a shorter line for AMWAY on another track at Ann Street in GR. Too lazy to check King Milling tonight!

West Michigan left 1 loaded rubber for CSX and spotted 2 empties for loading last night in Hartford.
