So does the Monday-Friday 326 arrive in Bay City Monday-Friday mornings? Because I believe it departs Alpena at night and arrives in Bay City the next morning. I may try to see them some other time if they're not running this weekend.

Both 326 and 327 depart their originating terminals on Mon-Fri nights, arriving on the other end the following morning.

Thank you. It seems like Sunday is the only day of the week when there's nothing to see in Alpena, and of course that's the day I decide to go :roll: But like you said, they probably wouldn't run at all over the holiday weekend.

C&IM SD20 #18 is sitting in Marquette Rail Ludington Yard. Didn't know why it was there, but it's one of the last in original paint.

It was transferred to MQT earlier this year. Unfortunately it suffered a major failure when MQT got it running and it sounds like it will be scrapped.

The yellow GRE loaner locomotive has been sitting south of Lowell for two days now. Lowell has 20 or 30 hoppers in town,. The yard on Ann Street is kind of full also, with one loaded center beam, a couple of empty center beams, and loads lined up for Amway and King.

How long do you expect it to stay in Manistee before being "Scrapped?" I know someone that could go to Manistee, but not until Mid June! Please stay
C&IM SD20 #81!!!! :cry:
