A little late, but from the Lincoln Secondary:

Glass Man headed south, crossed Inkster Road about 1100 EDT on Thursday 16 April. Didn't see what he had, but did hear it passing by. Went back north about twenty minutes to half an hour later with one center beam and one covered hopper.

29G has 69 cars coming into North Yard with about 6400 feet of train. Sounds like they’ll bring in 35 to Sterling. Not sure of the engine number. 121 just left Sterling with 9754 as their leader at 920am

29G will probably leave once 121 clears the interlocking at CP Bonita. I think NS 8005 is the leader, but I’d have to wait for the Form D first.

It should still be at North Yard. If not, it wouldn’t be too far south of it.

Just had NS 7265 (SD70ACU) rebuild, pull up to Sterling around 927pm on 7/7/20. Presumably this was 11N as it was a light engine.
