MTC Sub Locals...
Posted by RandallG on 2/26/2017, 5:30 pm, in reply to "Re: CTC - GTW MTC Sub Update"
L524 works out of Port Huron down to Mt. Clemens and occasionally Fraser (Great Lakes Recycling), and handles all customers between those points - Carter Lumber, B&D Drywall, Phoenix Stone - and rarely salt when needed at the old PolyOne in Chesterfield. As I've mentioned before, L524 took a big hit when the aluminum merry-go-round dried up. The remaining businesses are largely seasonal, so this train will usually run daily in the summer and fall - and when needed in the winter. On rare occasion, it will venture all the way down to East Yard with a "hot" load for interchange - for the Pontiac locals.
The other two locals, L515 and 950 work south out of Pontiac and handle MTC sub customers on the south end - Nolan Lumber Distribution, Polyterm, etc., and pretty much run on a daily basis. Hope this helps.
