Zipping across the main on the way to Esky early,lights caught my eye to the east. Turned around at the P.O. and went back to watch it. Wasn't moving. Up the road on the north side of the tracks, past MP375 found CN's 8018 and 2264 taking a rest brake. Doubt of the crew was out for coffee and donuts....unless the neighbors were in a giving mood, that being possible cause after all it is da U.P. Engine was running so they had not run out of gas. Saw a couple of three funnel hoppers and some short black tankers. What ever else was hid in the pucker brush, to the east.
Usual daytime east on the main at Gladstone, lead under the highway, at around 11 AM. All I saw was a string of various hoppers.
West bound at Cooks was gone when I went through around 11:45. Isabella still has the loggers rusting in place.
