All I can tell you is that many months ago (Sept. 2011) I had noticed gons of sand coming into Green Bay on A416 which comes from Stevens Point. When I inquired about it in the WISRAIL group I was told it loads near Hixton on the old GBW in western WI. I'm quite sure that L551 takes the loads north. The empties on L550 yesterday carried relatively the same reporting marks I had seen loaded sand carried in (NOKL,CRLE, etc.). As I recall there was an old thread on here that talked about this movement. I'm assuming that the current sand movements are the same ones talked about previously. The details of what is going on with this stuff near Trout Lake I do not have.
