More likely cleaning the flangeway at the crossings. Packed ice and snow in there can and does derail trains.
Didn't they derail one up there last year? Or get it stuck in the snow on a crossing. I vaguely remember pictures of it being posted. Maybe its been longer than that

Not 100% positive, but sounded like northbound out of Cadillac around 0900.
Yesterday I heard them talking about traverse city and Saturday. I could only hear one side of the conversation so I'm not sure if they were discussing past or future.

How many trains come by you a day?
I should count some day so I can give an educated answer. I'm thinking at least 20. There's been 4 since I got home from work about 8
