26 - Empty grain X59 leaving ZIQ yard.

Unfortunately a loaded grain had an issue in a yard  ahead and blocked more trains coming to us. This was the end of day 1 at Rumo system.
Soon the part 2 will be published here.

Interesting that the coupler height on the narrow gauge hopper car is the same as the broad gauge.  I assume Rumo hauls general freight?
