This afternoon, (3/4/2012) Heading to Mayfair - I went under the south end of Glendale Yard on Capitol & saw a long string of covered hoppers. I would guess they are either empties that returning from Chicago? Or another loaded grainer for Chicago? Anyone have any idea?
Went the same way home, and saw a crew looked like coming home from Muskego.
Doze ain't grainers, Sal. 2-bays are salt or cement. Unit trains pretty well run from end to end - no real revenue sitting midway. That string has been on that track for about 5 days. They're being billed for each dwell day - may be headed to the Buzzi-Unicem (Lonestar logo) plant @ 6th/Canal. Their 2 tracks were pretty full when I passed Sunday & Monday. Think the Cp TRANSFER (job 45) usually makes that run out the spur off track 17.
Generally Saturday is a Mosquito 203x, and Sundays are 249x ??? Often on the M'woky tower its just EXTRA.3807 teamed with goslings 1504 and 1505 Sunday morn. Heard 4078 sneak into town for a fish fry Friday night.
