There used to be a small lumber yard on the east side of the tracks at the co-op mill. Had another location in Grant. Google seems to indicate they are closed.

Nothing looks like it moved (C&M load hasn't moved) so they must have been on tree removal

West Michigan left 4 cars for CSX in Hartford last night. The new 136 lb rail has been installed on the CSX main and it looks awesome!

Does the lumberyard south of 54th on Clay Ave. still receive wood products? I don't get down that a way much anymore.
