F909(I didn't catch the last two numbers) went northwest on the Pontiac Branch with 42 empty ethanol cars. Leading was NS 3344(SD40-2) and NYCW 9990(C32-8). They got the clear for the next couple of blocks before they got to the plant. Also seen in the siding was NYCW 491(GP15-1) and NYCW 9042(U23B(Making it's last trip on the NYCW in NYCW paint)) waiting to pick up tomorrows ethanol loads, with them was NS 910192 a hopper to place inbetween the loads and the locos.

F909-99 with NYCW 492 and the rare NYCW 990 pulling 37 ethanol tankers up to the plant today. They left the power on the siding there and it will take the empties back the yard tomorrow.
