I showed a pic of them 2 weeks ago and they were stored by the intersection with CN. They had to push them down to drop off a hopper to Quality Dairy.

Yes because they took delivery of a hopper.

QD sold the plastic milk jug blow mold biz but it’s still in the same spot, just not owned by QD.

Adrian and Blissfield? No, they don't. JAIL, which is owned by the same owners as the Adrian and Blissfield and uses the A&B locomotive, does have trackage rights. These rights comes from the JAIL's takeover of the NS Jackson to Lansing line.

ADBF 1760 picked up the gon at Friedland this morning around 10:45. Did not spot any empties. Lots of shutterbugs present. They teamed up with 1758 to bring the car back down to Mason.
