G&W Power update:

HESR 2025 has been sold to Metro East Industries and will be leaving the Michigan Shore soon. MQT GP38-2 2043 will be transferred from MQT to MS to replace it.

GR 2104, once repaired, will be staying on MQT for the time being. MMRR 2057 will continue to work on the GRE.

HESR 3868 has also been sold to MEI. This is the unit MMRR "leases" from HESR for the Alma line. No word on a replacement for that one yet, but it was rumored that G&W bought a handful of ex NS (exx Conrail) GP38-2s from MEI and that at least one would wind up in Michigan.

Only a few cars in Lowell this week, and none at the end of last week. There must be a couple dozen in transit somewhere.

JAIL went south across kalamazoo street at 1:15ish today. Took 2 CSX box cars and didn't bring the blue scrap gon with them. Video I took is too large to post but scrap gon could've been left in the yards N of Saginaw/Oakland at the old GM plant. Or could've been left at Padnos. The earth would have shook had they run to Old Town again today.
