They did not go North today. Had several people near or along the tracks today from Cadillac to Walton and nothing came through from 8 to 12 this morning.

GLC OSTN went to Osmer today and picked up a 90-car potash train that came in from the CP to NS to AA. It’s parked in Durand currently. Anyone know where this train is headed tomorrow?

Wouldn’t that be serviced by LSRC?

No, HESR. In the last year or so Sargent's has been getting their potash via GLC/HESR. Sometimes CSX will deliver it to AnnPere and others by the routing you noted.

AARR, were you in Manton at the Main Street Crossing? I thought I saw someone with a tripod down there. Someone also crossed the tracks when the lights, bells, and train horn were activated.

That might have been AANR or KC but it wasn't me.
