Last night, JL-1 went to Jackson and amongst the normal coils and boxcars they brought north a flat car of pipes.
Interesting. Is it going to an online customer or a team track?

This morning, JAIL’s JL-2 job pulled the remaining stored coal gons from the Baker Street spur and spotted three scrap gons from CSX at Reid Machinery.

MDOT was present as they were taking pictures and measurements so they can replace the crossing.

The crew is now back in Cavanaugh Yard spotting the cut of coal gons they pulled. 11:35 aM.

So they ended up taking Reid 4 empty scrap gons. Then they did some other work in Cavanaugh Yard and went BACK to Reid and picked up two gons.

Reid is scrapping a bunch of stuff back there so there will be more runs on this Baker Spur to Reid coming up.

1758 was the solo unit today.

Grand elk north through Byron Center at 8:40pm. Hlcx 3834 long hood forward, WAMX 4125 and WAMX 4124 with 35 cars. Been weeks since I've spotted them.
Back south at 10:56, looked like 3 locos and maybe 45ish cars.

Strange - heard some GDLK southbound through Byron Center approx 8:45am. Wifey said it looked like a red locomotive, maybe a 2nd one behind it, and that was it. Odd to hear them southbound lite in the morning, especially after they ran south last night.

I can’t tell if this is a southbound CSX train or northbound LSRC but there are a string of cars on both sides of I-96 in Novi

So at 10:40am, the WAMX 4190 Wisconsin & Southern unit headed back lite north through Byron Center. Dunno what they took south with, but probably dropped it off in either Moline or Wayland.

Rip they’ll probably have to come back down considering it’s a dead end on Lake state so Any chance they’re going to come back down to the interchange at Holly?
