Maybe GLC is storing stuff in them, therefore still in use.

Re: GLC Updates August 2018

Thanks for the Beacon photos NS3322.
I heard them about 12 noon today in TC again. No chance to see what they brought up here.

Good to see! Surprised the super rare Saturday Traverse City trip didn't generate more excitement from the TC folks.
I only got to see that the rails are shined up on the Williamsburg branch.

Re: GLC Updates July 2018

I was at Beacon scrap in T.C. about 1300. I must have just missed them as there was quite a few TSBY hoppers that had been dropped off both on the end of the main and on Beacon's siding. I caught up with them back in town near the train station dropping of a couple of gons from Beacon. They then hea...

Back before Beacon started rail up again, I seem to remember someone posting in here that they do on occasion go both Northern branches making a long day. Might have been coming up on a holiday and they wanted to get cars out.

Re: GLC Updates June 2018

Heard them in TC here a bit ago. Making their way around town now. They dropped 6 gondolas to Beacon on the Grawn branch about 11:45, and were on their way to Williamsburg with a center beam. Beacon started loading not more than 5 minutes after the 6 cars were spotted. Apparently those cars couldn'...
