Funny that Don S. should have brought up the haulage of Paint Ore by the E&LS. Got a few shots of them between Coleman and Abrams southbound to Green Bay yesterday (9/13). Amazingly they had about 13 loads of said Paint Ore. Train had a total of about 65 cars of which about 16 looked like empties coming out of storage. The businees part of the train, besides the Paint Ore loads had about 9 or 10 loads of OSB from LP in Sagola, a CSXT insulated box car of Canned Veggies from Oconto Falls and the rest were pulpwood loads. Here is a shot of them just south of Coleman: http://www.flickr.com/photos/frvr11/9734516999/

The E&LS also has about 15 grain loads currently sitting in Oconto Falls that should move soon.
