AML freight train west of CP Ypsi

Unread postby Ypsi » Fri May 11, 2018 6:06 am

Just had the first freight train in multiple years heading for Jackson via the AML between ypsi and Jackson. All steel coil cars heading west bound. Anyone have any ideas for the reason? Hopefully it's increased traffic to JXN, but more likely than not it was an extra.

JAIL yard in Mason had six or seven loaded coil steel cars, I saw more further down the line towards Holt but not in an area I could count the cars

Does anyone know if this will happen again?
