I saw 395 pulling two empty centerbeams crossing Holiday rd. at 1210. They were coming from Williamsburg headed toward the train station in TC.
MOW pickup was sitting on the side of the road watching the signals then he went into town without stopping at any of the other crossings.


Wonder if they took anything north with them? I didn't see any lumber in town this morning unless it was well hidden. Spent the morning at the dentist so didn't even get to hear them leave.

They brought up the loaded center beam that was sitting by the engine house last night.

At this time, all the rest of the other GP38s were heading south to Osmer with a grain load. At 4:38pm, they were over onto CSX at Howell picking up 38 cars off the Howell CSX passing siding.
397-399-385-398-396 in that order when they went west by me, and later going back north to Owosso. Each of the two GP38s on each end were back to back.

GLC has been really good at evading me this week. I did hear them come back south through Mount Pleasant around 1:30 this afternoon though

Hopefully they're running tomorrow, my plan is to show up bright and early in Owosso and go from there.
