JAIL lined NB at Cedar 9:20 AM

9:48 AM - power light SB across MLK/N. Grand River headed down to Padnos/Alro/Saginaw Yard/CN?
JAIL took a cut of the stored DTE coal cars to the interchange with CN today. Then they headed back north.

They were in Ensel at 12:15 when dispatch notified them that the CN Lansing Local R934 brought the previously bad-ordered depressed flat car back to the interchange as the bad brake pipe had been fixed.

They are making a rare second trip down to the CN interchange to pickup the depressed flat car before they take it to Reid Machinery on the Quality Dairy spur.

Same power southbound leaving Plainwell at 5:20. At least 32 cars including 8 or more boxcars, and it looked like a few open hoppers before the covered hoppers at the end.
Trails to Rails. Put the track back.
