I saw it sitting in Durand yard Sunday afternoon. Evan is a good guy! We chased LSRC a couple times and he makes a cameo in my 2nd LSRC video.

Heard them return to Cadillac at 1620. Still switching at 1730. I'm guessing moved cement to North Yard for a northern trip tomorrow.

SABitt at MichiganRailroads.com said they went north with 24 loads (all cement?) and came back with 24 empties (all cement?)
