Tues morning Edit: Didn't hear them go back south, so likely still up in the yard in GR awaiting the next crew.

GDLK brought them 2 hoppers and 1 loaded centerbeam around 2:30 PM yesterday afternoon. Strange to see them in the daylight. Looked like the hoppers were for Amway.

JAIL currently in Ensel Yard. They set out two boxcars from Michigan Packaging and have a loaded flatcar of metal for Alro Steel in Lansing. Track crew is working on the switch behind Alro as this is the first car they’ve received in over three years.

UPDATE 11:50 AM: CN 5457 R934 is at Old Hollow Yard now. They brought 2 gons for Padnos, 3 loaded boxcars for Michigan Packaging and the depressed axle car for Reid Machinery. They will definitely be going down today!

UPDATE 12:40 PM - :D the depressed flat car is depressed and bad ordered. It’s left on track three on CN. Jail is still taking with them three boxcars and two empty gons for Padnos

CN local has five Empty boxcars and two loaded scrap gons. I think they also have to work Biewer and the Purina Mill
