    Are you seeing traffic picking up, @badlandnp? Carloads/week year over year are just about where they were at this time in 2019. Definitely been more trains in, out and through the Seattle Terminal. Grain rush is on too.

    Seems to be fairly steady. The coal runs in herds now, I hear that they are tieing several together for the eastbound move from Mandan to Superior and back. So that makes for a bit of predicatability. Lots of grain just now, of course. Has been a dearth of wind-gen sets tho, only seen 4 or 5 of those this summer. Oil is steady as she goes as is auto and intermodal.

    Not a lot of variety in power anymore. GE's by the dozens with 70ACe's thrown n here n there. Since the roundhouse closed 7 July, it has ended a lot of power interest here.

    Saw a long string of BN hoppers with next to no vandalism, so had to do a drive by. Then as I got to the east end, the Beach or Dickinson local returned with a string of stuff.

    Not nearly enough! I always think of Warren McGee's phot of a Yellowstone pulling hard right here, and it's towering column of smoke and steam!! That would have been a sight to see!!
