Short lines can be flexible and adjust their schedules operating when their customers need them

Could be waiting for Y297, or a crew most likely. They wait at Vans for a crew most Friday nights then take it south to CSX on Sat morning.

Michigan Shore headed north through Ferrysburg about 10min ago. Didn't see it, but saw the traffic at 3rd st crossing and heard the horn. They must leave Muskegon early on Fridays. That seems to be the only day they come through town by noon or so.

Believe I'm hearing GDLK going north at 36th St in Grand rapids at 8:50pm.
