Not me either. I'm stuck at work. However if they go north next week chances are good I'll be trackside.

Nice video IMHO :) . I wonder if all the cars were loaded or if they had empties in-between loads for spacers?

The empties were dropped in Elmira. Really would have liked to chase today.

If I didn't have an appointment to hold in Cadillac I would've followed them. I love a good chase! Maybe next time...

Most of those were Potash empties from HESR. The AA picked them up at Osmer this morning.

GLC OSTN crew picking up a CSX-power grain train at Osmer. Will deliver tonight to Oakley. Film at Eleven. Will be the first CSX power in a long time to cross the CN at Durand, I presume.
