Thanks Mark. The LP plant is just south of Sagola and has been there since maybe the early 90's. Most of the product (LP calls it Rimboard) is loaded into box cars. Every so often we see a centerbeam too. The 15 in yesterday's train might have been a weeks worth of loads. It had been six days since the E&LS came south with traffic from Upper Michigan. My understanding is that the loading track at LP will hold 7 box cars. This train had two cuts of 7 along with a lone load all by itself in the train. So, I guess you could say that it was two pulls in the last week from LP. In the past I've seen as many as 20 or so in one train.
