The reason Gearhart seemed empty is I saw no coil cars, so did the JAIL traffic just disappear or was it rerouted east? So has NS eliminated WBs on the Michigan line to the Elk? I've seen no coil cars on any Elk train in a week now.

Bellevue to Wayne then Jackson.

No sign of a stone train yet but the amount of Amtrak gondolas has doubled to 13 or 14 with an on-board mini excavator and a large piece of MOW equipment on a second track behind the string of gondolas. They appear to be parked on the gravel pit leads.
If the Conductor is in charge of the train, then why is he promoted to Engineer?

Looked like a good sized train today east of Chelsea. It was stopped east of Lima Center Rd and Chelsea Grain Company on the single track, likely because they had to were going to switch Chelsea Grain Company on its trip to Jackson. Did not get a car count, but it was 2-3 engines. I did notice some track cars on the train, something I don't recall seeing on the train west to Jackson months before.
