What's the power on that Geo Train? I'm guessing just a Geep and 2 cars?

Several cars and a GP. There’s only a narrow field of view from my office so that’s the best I can say.
FRA train, and now the geometry train. Here come the slow orders next. :lol:

I'm guessing he may run eastward out of Grand Rapids on the Lansing Sub-division. He did tie down in Grand Rapids for the night.

Sounds like they tied down in Holland, actually. My bet is they’ll make a quick run up to West Olive then go East to GR then run up to Fuller and finally head East from there to Plymouth for the day. But just an educated guess based on what they’ve done in the past.
