The GLLX 4 (SW9) went to Hartford in March. The GLLX 4433 (GP9) is still at CHS in Wayland because CHS is leasing it. Not sure what the plan is for 921 in Lansing and 4428 in Flint but it would not surprise me if they went to Hartford eventually.
Is the WMR needing more power for more carloads? Or just the GLLX unit that is already there is getting tired?

The unit(s) will only go to Hartford (if they do) because the owner of GLLX is also the owner of the WMI.

Is this the only ex-NS engine on the property? Any ideas on the reporting mark?

Far as I can see, only 1 unit there, it's in the back, no access, can't see marks

Thanks. Is it visible from the road? (I have a zoom lens).

It's pretty visible from the road, the cab is facing Miss Scarlet and it's under a yellow crane looking thing, not sure what the yellow thing does but it's usually just sitting under that

While driving on I-475 thru Flint over the weekend, I spotted an ex-NS B32-8 at the Stoneco facility there. I am assuming the old power in Lansing and Flint will be sent to Hartford soon?

I also forgot to share my photo of the B32-8 in Lansing. The reporting marks are NIWX, which is for Northern Illinois & Wisconsin Railway.
