Looks like it was a quick trip to McBain and back. 4 gons and 1 centerbeam which were in North Yard are now gone. Assuming TC bound within the last 20 minutes.

Headed to Williamsburg with the center beam. They took 5 loads from Beacon today. Also pushed the TSBY box car farther down the Grawn branch a few hundred feet to give them more switching lead room.

Here is some video of yesterdays run to Beacon in Traverse city.



Note the little red sign in the middle of the tracks in the 2nd video. I think is says end line or something like that. Well now it is definitively the end as they have pulled the spikes on the rail just beyond it and it is laying on it's side.

Also all public grade crossing beyond Beacon now have "Exempt" on the crossbucks.

There have been several this year- I've caught 10, 16, 21 car trains with revenue cars and cuts of these cars for scrap.

Nope. Consist today was:

GLC 390
GLC 396
6 Plastics Hoppers
8 Cement Hoppers
2 Tanks

I chased them from Cadillac to Kalkaska and got some good video for my YouTube. I'll put the video here when I have it uploaded.

Also, something worth noting. They really fly on this line! It looked like they were doing 40+ north of Manton, we were doing 60 and were just barely passing them!



I know the plastics hoppers for the transloads south of petoskey, cement hopper for the Elmira cement plant and where the two tank cars destine to?

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.
