I wonder if that was the welded rail train that was on the LSRC for a while. They laid rail around Pinconning and Tawas City, IIRC.

Q329 west by MA in Lansing with consist BL2 described at 09:20.

Jail is currently working the Lansing Belt interchanges. They were north at MA at 11:40 with 1758, 2 CSXT boxcars, 4 CSXT coils, 1 GTW coil, and 1760. Can anyone trace CSXT 136155 or 141130? Those are the boxcars.

Haven’t seen D708 today but they’ve been running with a pair of sponge bob SD40-3s, both facing east.

D700 east at Zeeland at 11:40 with 6545 and picked up Holland switcher 2772, with 3 Lumber loads and about 15 shortie covered hoppers from MSRR. I wonder what the next Holland switcher will be? I think a nice GP30 slug set would look real good with all this snow
