Goes to GLC at Ann Pere for lumber loading.
There is a customer in McBain or Marion that loads what they call crane pads/equipment pads. Massive platforms that get bolted together for oil rigs, etc. MQT used to get them loaded at Alpine/Michigan Rail.
Could be loading them at other places too. Where ever the most convenient spot for cars and trucks that load them and best price happens.

Biewer lumber in mcbain loads finished lumber. Currently undergoing a $31m expansion so I expect them to be a more regular destination for beam cars.

Late today as I have been out and about all morning. Q32914 was early and went west by Howell at 08:20. CSXT 35, single unit with 70 cars. Q32814 was late, as I only now just found out why, by Howell at 10:12. CSXT 8882 was leading but did not get a car or axel count because I did not see it, only heard it.

Currently going through Riverside. Sounds like pushers will meet them at Grand Junction. Apparently there is a coal train parked at Grand Jct. that the power will be used and returned once 326 is shoved up Saugatuck Hill.
