Superior was switched this morning for a change - cars were swapped around, looks like 1 was pulled out.

Two days in a row...    Did you happen to catch the Northbound?

No, but I heard it while walking home from work.

How many cars can Superior's spur hold?
 
It sounds like perhaps there were no cars in the spur before the seven were dropped off...
 
That's a heck of a long train for the island now  
 
 
EDIT: Google maps says 7...though I can't recall how far the spur extends. I've checked it out, but that was 10+ years ago. I have pictures somewhere...

The siding can hold 7 , 3 can be unloaded at a time. The lack of a barge a few weeks back resulted in Superior emptying all their cars with no replacements on the island so SRVI pulled everything last Tuesday leaving the siding empty.  
 
They seem to be bouncing around near the maximum a single barge load per week can handle with all the trans-loading in the yard.

SRVI came up and switched Superior again today - I guess they emptied 3 cars yesterday. Not sure if there were any NB or SB carloads .. Goose?

Barge was in this morning likely due to the holiday. Superior was switched around noon.  
 
Also the Jingle Pot Road crossing lost its center crossing gate / lights / light stand over the weekend. Looks like someone drove straight into it?

Light engines northbound to Superior Propane. Have to go out, won't be home for the southbound, but probably is just shuffling cars around and won't return with any.
