Re: Shortline Updates October, 2020

King Milling was moving hoppers around today. Unloaded at least 10. Another ~15 hoppers are parked south of town along the main. Still another line of ~10 still parked in town to be unloaded.

Re: Shortline Updates October, 2020

New hoopers were partially moved into Lowell by King. Still a lot along the mainline to the south. NOKL’s 852463 and 852296 for a couple numbers. All seem to start with 852. They look new, but some already have been vandalized with paint.

Re: Shortline Updates October, 2020

Good point, the cars are all CP, but anything CP originating in the US may be DBA SOO.

Re: CSX Train Location Updates, September 2020

Obscure question, I wonder if the larger rocks are for the Grand River Restoration project in GR. The are supposed to start the S.O I-196 to W. Fulton Street section later this year or early next year.

Not sure if GRE came to Lowell today, but the Lowell yard is full, mostly CP hoppers. They have been here most days this week.

Thanks. Where on MS did they originate? Who uses or generates ash?
From the now-demolished BC Cobb Coal-Fired Power Plant in Muskegon. They're mining out the bottom ash pits for environmental remediation.
Thanks! Good business while it lasts...
