They will often make two trips if they have more cars than the engine can handle going east out of GR at once.

GRE returned to GR WB around 2:30pm. A lot of cars in the yard, looks like they are still working on the interchange track.

There is a northbound Ann Arbor Railroad autorack train that has been sitting just before the Textile Road grade crossing for at least 5 hours. The train is crewless, and has AARR 2373 and 1337 leading. Both of the locomotives are idling. I am not sure why he is stopped without a crew, but I presume that once he gets moving, the autoracks will be stored on the Saline Branch.
