I hope I created the topic correctly. Grand Elk just left Elkhart with 2 locomotives and around 100 cars, including 6 loaded Center Beam lumber cars.

Looks like a good new thread Plannerdad. That's a nice train you caught.

I knew JAIL has a customer for flat steel but I didn't realize RSDC was one of them

Ambassador Steel takes flat steel from CSX as well as rebar. RSDC doesn’t get much via CSX as most comes via NS. These cars originated out of South Carolina

Thanks! Any technology is risky for me. I feel like it is cheating to catch it on the railcam.

What I assume is GDLK 503 is headed south with 4009, 3834 and 4002. They have just finished switching Wilbur-Ellis in Three Rivers MI and left at least a dozen cars in the spur for them. A lot of tanks and hoppers of fertilizer I’d wager.

Looks like 10 or so BNSF hoppers in Lowell. Went by the GRE Ann St. yard earlier and looks like another line of hoppers maybe for tomorrow.

They either ran early yesterday, or never ran at all cause I never saw them westbound in Ada when I was there from 12-9 pm
i'm so fresh, they call me fabreeze

Dan Cluley reporting live from Mason with last night’s JL-2 job brought back 20ish cars. 3 boxes for MI Packaging, a tank car for a transload in downtown Mason, a flat of rebar and 15 or so could cars for RSDC.

With the FRA truck running around everywhere yesterday and JL-1 not running, cars are stacking up at Ensel/CSX and Old Hollow/CN. Should be a busy day and the day crew is on the move.

3rd day in a row w no JAIL (JL-2) run north of Mason today.

Last night, JL-1 went to Jackson and amongst the normal coils and boxcars they brought north a flat car of pipes.
