Dan - JAIL was headed to the CN interchange to pull a string of coal cars that HESR had stored for DTE into storage. They are on the west side in the yard by the old GM plant.

I need to get a closer look, but I think there are more of the coal cars under the Cedar st bridge on the old LS&MS branch.

Pretty long string of empty CHs and two tanks on the interchange track at Fuller in Grand Rapids today, and a loaded tank, CH, and centerbeam on track 2. There is also a strange sign that has been installed in between the diamond and Indian Creek bridge. Looks like an hourglass with red and yellow on it. Didn't get a photo unfortunately.

Slow order board. MOW equipment was in the yard a week ago Monday 7am but I haven't seen them since. The centerbeam has a malfunctioning hand brake:(
