Nugent Sand in Norton Shores has been done for almost two years now. The spur has been severed at Lincoln Street and is completely removed within the Nugent Property. Last I checked they were using the runaround by Lincoln for storage. All sand that is currently being shipped is coming from their facility at Berry Jct.

Nugent trucks sand to Grand Rapids to load on the GDLk just like Sargent does from Ludington.

JAIL has been working on the west side of Lansing since about 1:00 am. Not sure what exactly, but from the horns I'd guess they were switching the hollows yard by the CN interchange.
At 03:30 they were sitting at the north end of Saginaw yard.

Mason to Jackson is definitely the usual overnight run for them.

After some switching at the north end of Saginaw yard they finally headed out about 4:30.
The EOT was still visible north of Willow st 20 min later, so I assume they had work at Padnos.

Heard them headed south through Lansing around 5:30 or 6:00.
