Anything for TC in this big train? I know a gon came up a couple days prior waiting to go to TC, but curious if anything else. And were those tanks for storage somewhere? I know they have customers who get tanks in Cadillac and Kalkaska, but I thought I read somewhere that there were a bunch coming for storage (wondering where they will store)?

Nothing for TC. A cut of tanks was dropped south of Cobb St also, so Wednesday's train was larger still. The tanks were taken to Yuma yesterday morning for storage. A second crew has been added to Cadillac and works evenings. Mostly switching here in town and also Viking Energy in McBain.

We sure could use some rail traffic here in TC to shine up the rusting tracks. I can get a look trackside on my way to a essential destination if they come.

I have the same problem anytime a picture or video is posted. If I follow the link in an email I can see them but if I use the quick link I've saved to get to the boards, nothing. I think its using different programs, of course this is through my phone I'm speaking of. You might get into the settings to see if there's some sort of parental controls or security setting that defaulted to block pics and videos. I've been seeing a lot of that lately with updates. They assume everyone is a child apparently. In most cases they're correct :lol:
