AANR, liking your elevation pictures! Now if you climb a tree you'll imitate J_T's art :D .

Seems like they're getting a lot of feed cars for Caddy and outbound lumber loads from McBain.

I traced one of those center beams and it went loaded to Indiana. I would think that was truck distance.

You're right, RDD. IN seems like truck distance.

GLC was forecasting 300 cars of feed (6 a week) and 200 cars of outbound lumber (4 a week). I think if we check AANR's video's we'll see higher numbers of those commodities in the consists.

Posted by TC John on 1/29/2020, 3:51 pm. GLC was in TC today (#382). I assume they will leave town with an empty center beam and 3 scrap loads (assuming all 3 gons were released).
