Grand Elk MOW equipment decided to wake up and get an early morning workout in.
Harsco 6700 tamper and Knox Kershaw KBR 875 Relam Ballast Regulator south approx 7:30am through Byron Center. Haven't seen them move since they repaired the bridge area around Buck Creek a little over a month ago. These are the two that are usually stored at 76th St on a short spur there.

Back north with one piece at 5:45pm.

JAIL came north today power light w 1760 leading NB and got onto CSX trackage before ten. CSX has two cars out for them but it seems like they are at CN or working Saginaw Yard because they didn’t grab the CSX cars yet.

LSRC Y110 is working in Flint Yard currently. A loaded Z388 is sitting on the main north of the yard waiting to go to Essexville. It's possible they'll head north today.

Went back south around 12:15am.

At 7:30am or so, Harsco 6700 tamper went south by the home again. Ballast regulator may have stayed south overnight.

They took three boxcars to CN today from Michigan Packaging in Mason. Then they pulled 40 empty coal cars, part of the unit train they have stored for DTE, off of the Baker Spur aka QD/Reid Machinery Spur and took them to Cavanaugh Yard.
