I was passing by, I'm back in lansing now. I couldn't tell if it was nb or sb. I'd guess nb because their train was on the main east of bagley.

NB thru Kingsley at 10:20. The marching band and the train had a loudness competition. The train won, but barely.

2 engines - 396 and 395. No freight.

I'm guessing a supply issue, as the demand is there. The place looks empty (well, figuratively speaking).

Confirmed. I went thru the Amerihart yard yesterday, just saw a lot of floor joists and other structural lumber products, but almost no dimensional bare lumber or stacks of plywood. Weeds are growing in the siding tracks.

I might try to go out and catch them if they make a run next week. There's a few crossings in Kingsley I have to film and catch a train at.
