At the end of the line at Bond St. they didn't spot the NPS car. WBS did have an empty centerbeam so they pulled that and shoved back to Lineville. Going under HWY 41:
Back at Lineville they made a number of curious moves down the old main with the whole train. I got a break on their last shove back north to get an unexpected clear view of the power shoving hard uphill:
This whole business started at about 0930 and at 1300 they were finally on the CN main and headed into Green Bay with their 72 cars:
This is the first southbound in a week. Train was 72 cars. In addition to the empty centerbeam from WBS, they had 5 loads of veggies that I saw
sitting at Stiles Jct. yesterday, Also in the train was about 11 loads and an empty tank from LP in Sagola, a couple of LPG empties from
Crivitz, maybe 12-15 covered hoppers maybe from storage, an EEC mt box car and the rest were pulpwood loads. Lots of cars in Green Bay for
Northbound they finally got out of town around 1730 or so. Had close to 100 cars. If I am not mistaken they had upwards of 12 or so loaded covered hoppers, along 3 LPG loads, and a tank load for LP. The empties were about four CRYO/CSXT's for OF and the rest all Blue Bullets and rack flats.
