A little more than two weeks ago the Tilden mine ran out of pellets. One unit was down and the other was scheduled for a shut down for maintenance. Apparently, when they schedule maintenance, it's set in stone. On top of that Cliffs had us loading about 230 DMIR cars a day for the CN to take to Escanaba. Between these two things, every pellet the Tilden had on the ground or could make was gone. So, cliffs canceled all the boats and almost all the train men sat home without pay. I finally got a job for tomorrow. Hopefully this means things are getting back on track (pardon the pun) You'd think after 100 years they'd have this figured out.
