West Michigan RR left 3 cars at the CSX interchange in Hartford last night after picking up 3 that had been delivered by D700.

Some might be interested to know that the West Michigan handled 248 carloads in 2018, up significantly from the 20ish handled in 2016 (I don't have any numbers for 2017).

JAIL NB at CP-MA in Lansing at 10:35 today with 1758, 5 boxcars and 1760. They should interchange cars with both CSXT and the CN today before returning south.

Great to hear about the car count on WMI!

Ann Street yard was full at noon today GRE was moving cars around, but I did not see them go east and I have not checked Lowell today. But I might have missed them.

Grand Elk Z739 is on the ground at Fuller in Grand Rapids. Has a half dozen or so sandies on the ground but upright on the interchange wye, looks like they were shoving a whole lotta wheaties up the hill. A dozen or so are fouling the west end of the yard and over Alpine. The 2104 is being warmed up but they can’t get to the string they were shoving because they’re afoul of the west end.

Looked like two sand hoppers on the interchange track at Ann Street Friday around 6:00pm. Not sure if they were on the ground, but they were upright. Still a line of cars west of Alpine Ave. Lowell was unloading a lot on Saturday, will have some empties by Monday.
