Very busy Hug"H"art, just passed them with 303 coming in from the south with the yellow SD45 rebuild leading and Z739 coming in from the north. Didn't see what was leading that but my guess would be the GP35m.

Grand Elk SB around 6:00pm at 54th Street in Wyoming. 3 locomotives, 45-50 cars, 10-15 box cars. Anyone know where the box cars are going to or from? Otsego? 10 month old Granddaughter is not interested yet, but there is still time!

If they were hi cube boxcars they were probably going to the paper mill in Otsego.

Late report
Yesterday (Tuesday), the northbound GDLK train from Kzoo to GR was tied down next to CHS on the south side of Wayland at about 600pm. It appeared to be on its way north again just before 8pm. WAMX 4206 & 4124 for power with 25 or so cars.

Coopersville & Marne will take 3 loaded centerbeams to Standard today, on duty at noon. Probably worth catching, looks like the clouds are gonna stay away.
