Saw some MOW forces working just south of white cloud on MQT this afternoon, probably 8-10 employees there.

Michigan Shore is having major crossing work done at Getty St and Ferris St. The work at Ferris has had Grand Haven schools all kinds of pissed off. Apparently the railroad won't reschedule the work for summer and it is making people's commute difficult. This may make for another extra long train soon.

The East Grand Rapids of the Lakeshore will soon get over it.

Nah humbug. They probably complained that it was a rough crossing previously.

Sounds like GRE is coming up on college Ave in grand rapids eastbound
It’s not whether you win or lose, but rather how many pages you add to the rulebook
