Update: Returned to Cadillac from the north around 1800.
Looks like they came to TC again (twice this week) as the 6 hoppers at Beacon are moved and there are now only 3 DJJX gondolas there instead of 5. The box car is still spotted on the main next to the siding.
Are the hoppers in question small, 2-bay hoppers? If so, yesterday someone posted video on FB of a scrapping crane tipping one of them onto it's side. Someone also posted a a GLC pair (392 trailing, I believe) coming into TC with three deep gons, one green, perhaps.
Yes, they were former sand or grain hoppers (former Southern/TSBY). They were moved to the far end of the siding where the cranes tip them over for scrapping. They then rearranged the DJJX high side gondolas, leaving 3 (one was green, the other two black) farther down the siding so they can be loaded. Earlier in the week, they took 3 loads (one blue and two black DJJX) from Beacon and spotted the 5 replacements. As of this morning, there were only those 3 gondolas left for loading (and the remaining hoppers and box car). They've been pulling from a bunch spotted in Walton Junction waiting for the final trip to TC for the torch.

I think you may have a good chance to catch them headed north towards Petoskey tomorrow. Especially since the Owosso turn came all the way into Cadillac today. There's a bunch of cars in town that need to go north.
