Re: GLC Updates October 2018

anyone got updates on what is happening in TC haven't heard much. Well TC man was our best info supplier till he left town a month or so ago. I kinda rely on the Cadillac boys for a heads up on TC bound trains, I can then report what I see. A little hard for me to prowl thru town every day looking ...

I never saw or heard anything on Tuesday, but today I noticed the rails in TC look shined up.

Re: GLC Updates October 2018

Lake Ave. in Traverse City has been closed for major reconstruction. Crews have found rails buried under the pavement, remains of the siding that used to go behind McGough's Farm & Lawn Supply then across 8th street ending at TC Canning Co. now Thirlby's Automotive.

Re: Ann Arbor to Traverse City study

While the TC train would be cool, I would rather see commuter trains and light rail in the metro Detroit area before this. While there were numerous reasons, lack of public transportation in Detroit was a big reason Detroit was not even considered by Amazon for its second HQ. Where did Amazon locat...

I think this sounds fun. No problem with me if they spend several million $. I might even ride it a couple of times a year.

Re: GLC Updates September 2018

I heard the horns on the GLC Williamsburg track about 1410. Since I am more than a mile from the track no chance to see what they were pulling or which way they were going (probably back to TC).

Do you have internet where you are going, if so you can still tune in to the message board and comment on stuff. I will miss your sightings and reports. Good luck.

Re: GLC Updates August 2018

="TC Man" The track south of TC is actually Consumers Energy's siding (not a public team track). I also have a photo of 2 well cars being unloaded from the main in Grawn across US-31 from Cherryland Electric's headquarters. That was about 4 or so years ago. I've seen M of W cars parked on that Cons...
