So I'm a bit late with this report. Friday about 5:50 PM there was an eastbound through Galesburg. I only got a good look at the last part of it, but it was an unusually long mixed freight for that time of day. Lots of gons, some coil cars, and the obligatory CHs. May have had some box cars at the front, but I didn't get a good look at that part. They were moving along quite fast, too.
Trails to Rails. Put the track back.

Probably the B33 Jackson-Kalamazoo turn, used to run at night, been running during the day due to ongoing AMTK track work west of Battle Creek. The B57 local out of Hinman Yard in BC still runs at night, I think Sun-Thur?, but I dont think they even go to Augusta anymore.
