Are there any GP35s stationed on the north end as of late?
GP35 #392 is in the Cadillac pool right now.

Re: If the Rails Were Still There

GLC/MIGN has had pulpwood log loading sites over the years including Cadillac, Manton, South Boardman, Kalkaska, and perhaps other locations I'm not aware of. South of Cadillac they loaded logs at Ashton and other locations. I did think about utilizing the spur just south of Manton where logs were ...

Re: If the Rails Were Still There

In addition to outbound cement the plant also receives 30ish cars a week of fly ash. At this time there are no other customers between Williamsburg and the cement plant. I'm working on a scenario where they transload up to 8 cars per week of pulpwood logs for mills down south. I didn't think about ...

Since they are food manufacturing, and a good sized one at that, I wonder if the rails were still there from either railroad if they would rece...

Re: Great Lakes Central updates July 2020

Sorry if this isn't what the thread is for. My 4-year-old son is obsessed with trains. We live in Mount Pleasant so we often go to the tracks there and watch for the train. We've been able to catch it twice at the Jordan road crossing. We'd love to catch it at Island Park sometime but we haven't be...

Do you think we'll be seeing CTSN run at night, much like ONTN did while track upgrades happened between Owosso-Ithaca?

Most of those were Potash empties from HESR. The AA picked them up at Osmer this morning.
