There is a short string of coke hoppers sitting in Selma Yard. They've been there over a week. Wyoming Feed is a great customer for GLC up here. As a side note, I don't believe the MAC facility has shipped any cars out yet. Weather hasn't been good for getting corn out of the fields.

And it seems like feed cars are up

Yes it is. First loads out of Cadillac this year. A longer string came in yesterday. At least ten hoppers sitting at the facility this afternoon.

It seems like the feed place is getting more than the 6 car a week they were projecting.

It seems like Biewer is shipping more than the 4 cars a week of lumber they were projecting.

And inbound coke loads seem to be only a few a week. I wonder if EJIW has proceeded to shut down it's foundry in EJ in favor of the new place in Elmira which doesn't use coke.
