Michigan Shore is just coming into downtown Muskegon now. No visual, but I can hear them. Sounds like 2025 leading again.

GDLK crew, NS rails that are leased to GDLK, CSX power. Could go either way.

No. CSX train, CSX power, CSX routing. NS has nothing to do with these trains.

MMRR scheduled to swap motors in Genesee Yard with the HESR 740 sometime today. The goal was around noonish, but things change on the railroad. Last I knew there was 2 cars for Bear Truss in Paines to pick up on the way back west. A lumber car and a Michigan Chloride Tank.

This is most likely the end of the HESR 3868 on the MMRR as I'm sure the motor will not be back before being sent to MEI.


13:09 MMRR leaving Saginaw WB with 3867 short nose forward.

14:04 leaving Paines with a stop in Wheeler and St Louis.

15:45 Leaving Wheeler. Next and last stop, St Louis. Also note* Tank wasn't for Michigan Chloride like assumed. Most likely for CPS (Crop Production Services) at the Breckenridge Elevator and only has lumber car now.

16:26 ran around lumber car and is spotting in Bear.

16:42 left St. Louis with 3 CHs to run south of Alma for GLC.

17:13 Shoved the 3 CHs and the already 3 waiting tank cars up S End Wright Siding for GLC to pick up.

17:32 3867 is in the barn here in Alma and crew is heading to the office to tie up.

That's all for the St Louis Sub today folks! :lol: until Thursday that is.

Would you happen to know which customer receives the tank car?

Michigan Chloride. They receive their cars in the same track as Bear Truss Lumber in St Louis.
