Kiros Energy in Gaylord

Unread post by AARR »

From KC at the other board.
Posted by KC on 11/21/2020, 10:40 pm, in reply to "Re: LSRC Gaylord"
Kiros Energy Marketing is opening a bulk propane transloading facility terminal in Gaylord. Would assume this is what this siding is being built for. Reported to be operational November 2020. Should be a nice increase in traffic for Gaylord.

They are definitely getting the north michigan market, with transloads in Grand Rapids, Saginaw and now Gaylord.

Does anyone know how much additional business this will be? Cars per week?

Thanks.

Is any of this traffic being taken from GLC? Seems in this corridor that GLC and LSRC compete for the same traffic, or the potential for that to happen.

Sounds good Don, thanks.

How many times a week do they go North of Grayling? Maybe twice per week is my guess.

Also by the way, do you or anyone know if the new Arauco Plant South of Grayling is receiving/shipping by rail yet? Looking at my maps app, Lake State has made a nice connection from that place to their mainline, along with an impressive track setup into there.

Thanks.

About twice a week to Gaylord sounds right, Dave.

According to the LSRC Newsletter they ordered 30 bulk head flats for service at Arauco. Also, the Grayling switcher has been seen going in that direction with box cars. So it "appears" Arauco is shipping by rail.

Word is (from someone who works there) that a twice a week run to Gaylord on Tuesdays and Thursdays is done by 394; Afternoon Grayling Job. My recent observations are empirical evidence to verify.

Just remember TC MAN you and I are paying for the new Manistee River bridge and rail work in the TC area. LSRC has an impressive sales lady who did wonders upon Grand Elks start-up in Kalamazoo back in 2009. LSRC has benefitted from her and doesn't have MDOT paying for their ROW maintenance. Yes they both have a smaller market but different circumstances to capture it.

It's not from MDOT but LSRC is getting improvements paid for by Federal funding.
If you're paying state taxes, you likely are also paying federal taxes.
