Question about the Z151 schedule. I've noticed there's no weekend Z151 jobs that go south past Turner. On Fridays, does Z151 go up to Baldwin, and wait until Sunday at 1700 to go on duty and go south and tieing down at Turner street in the early morning?

Per Borg, GDLK ran to L&W supply in Grand Rapids today around 10am with 3 loaded centerbeams. I walked over there 2 nights ago and it was empty of cars, very little product out in the back lot.

Heard GDLK at Fuller around 1 am last night. Due to the stay at home orders, you could hear that RS3K for miles
