Zeeland industry report:

There is a freshly delivered BNSF covered hopper on the spur at Van Den Bosch feed, their first car in a few months. Either one or two covered hoppers currently at Plastcore. Two empty centerbeams at Zeeland Lumber. They are by far the busiest of the three, sometimes getting switched 3x per week.

D70731 that arrived in Lansing at 06:00 was just another D708 east end job to Brighton and back. After being annulled Monday and Tuesday, as well as twice last week, I'll believe it when I see it if they actually run one today as this could be a permanent annulment. Overnight, they were at Fowlerville switching the old Thermofil plant by 01:15, by Howell at 03;05 with 17 cars, ran around their train at Brighton, set off the Ann Pere set off in the transfer, picked up the 25 cars GLC left for them in the Howell pass on Monday and still beat Q328 back to Lasing. Now that Thai-Summit seems to be sending no more scrap by rail, there is only two plastic plant industries at Fowlerville to switch other than GLC at Ann Pere, a once a month industry delivery in South Lyon and whatever occasional shorts they get for Webberville. Doc will say they the Unions wont allow it, but they have done it many times before, have 328 set off the Ann Pere cars there instead of Lansing, and 329 pick up the Ann Pere cars instead of Lansing, and they could just run D707 to Fowlerville and back twice a week (like they have lately) and kiss D708 goodbye forever.

Meanwhile, Q32801 went east by Howell at 07:52 with 48+455 and 116 cars, and Q32901 went west with 3367+357 and 85 cars.

Q329 should be about Breton St. in GR. Heard at least a GE but couldn't hear if the 40-2's were still on it. Solid K5LA on the leader.

D801 also cleared a pair WB at Saugatuck 0250.

Relax. Nothing is getting annulled permanently. Regular assigned conductor and extra board conductor are both on vacation.

I think they were trailing because tonight a q327 with them leading is going to have them pull a safety train
