Oh yes, I've seen the GRE one time spot 3 loaded centerbeams at St. Mary's for the C&M, when years earlier it's only been a dozen a year.

At approx 8:45pm, spotted Marquette rail working Vans on the north side of Grand rapids, likely some CSX yard job at Ann St, and 3 loaded centerbeams at St Mary's for Coopersville and Marne. Currently on my bike where Coopersville and Marne goes under i96 in Walker.
2 empty centerbeams at L&W supply in grand rapids on GDLK.

6:30pm: MQT parked quite a ways north of Turner; GRE fuller yard is essentially empty on all tracks, except for the one ballast car that has been there for 2 years. Maybe it has been sold??
