And when did Flex 'N Gate in Battle Creek stop shipping by rail?

So is there just one Jackson to Kalamazoo train now? Use to be 2 with the Battle Creek job. Seems IIRC wasn't B33 the night job and the BC train use to get to Gearhart before noon? Since we have found out the JAIL traffic goes east to Bellevue has there been a reduction in traffic to the Elk?

Townline is the dividing line between MDOT-owned track and Conrail-owned track. But the line is called the Michigan Line all the way to the Detroit River, or at least to the point where CP ownership begins. Amtrak does the dispatching on the MDOT portion as far as I know.

LC Howard in Kalamazoo. I think it is Cottonseed they get in woodchip cars.

Graphic Packaging/Treehouse in Battle Creek is switched by CN only as far as I know. Never, ever seen NS switching those.

Where is the unloading done? Is this the building at the east side of Botsford?

They did get some coil cars in not to long ago, but I don't know if they still are.
