Grand Elk north at Byron Center at 4:10pm. WAMX 4124 and WAMX 4009 with 16 cars. Heard their horn quite a few crossings to the south thanks to the south wind today. Had enough time to get in the backyard for a photo.

Back south approx 6pm with a number of what looked like sand hoppers, about 15 cars total.

Grand Elk north through Byron Center at 2:43pm, WAMX 4124 and WAMX 4017 with 14 cars. Sunny day - perhaps they'll be back south in daylight today if they have a quick turnaround.

Well that was too quick of a turnaround - back south at 4:12pm with 4017 leading 4124 and 27 cars.

GDLK was NB from Plainwell at 6:15. Got to the crossing late so I didn't catch the numbers on the power, but they were both black, one with the GDLK emblem. Twenty-six (I think) cars, mostly tanks and CHs. Saw 1 loaded center beam.
Trails to Rails. Put the track back.
