Heard them around 1000 and nothing since. Assuming northbound out of Cadillac today. I've been having trouble hearing them head that way the past month. Usually can hear them cross Boon and Haring Rds.

Brought a lumber load, took 2 empties. Also brought the yellow BISX yellow gondola back for loading. Same car number as last 3 yellow gons, seems to be in a regular rotation at Beacon. Along with the usual garden variety DJJX and occasional NS gons.

Brought a lumber load for Amerhart in Bates and pulled an empty. Added 2 DJJX gondolas to the existing BISX gon at Beacon (which was not ready to be released). Also left an MOW flat car on the north end of Boardman yard, right where they were doing clearing of brush on an old siding and doing something with the joint bars. Not sure what the plan is there...
