Coming out of BK with a cup'a, heard the horns blowing for Deer Street. Keeping under the posted speed limit, hustled to the US2 bridge over the tracks, and parked. Within a couple of minutes CN8952 in the lead of a string of 2, 3, and 4 bay hoppers hauling taconite. Distributed power was CN2246, followed by 8 empty bulkhead loggers, 3 loaded gons with scrap, 1 black and 2 white tankers, 7 coil, 1 box, two spine 4 more coil, a ratty bulkhead, and 3 more spine. Sure not setting any land speed records. Nothing on the wye, a yellow box at the far end of the depot passing track. No sign of tulips yet.
