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.

Looks like 5 loads pulled from Beacon. Went to lunch while they were switching there at noon, and they still had to go to Williamsburg.

Darn! Sorry, I meant to say Friday.

Strange move going back to Owosso at 6pm.

Found a short video of GLC in Traverse City today pulling 5 loads that came from Beacon: https://youtu.be/t0ZgIs07jwA

When I left Temple a little after 2015 it still hadn't come through. That's only 26 miles from Cadillac- would switching McBain account for that?

Possibly yes. GLC has to switch three and occasionally four customers in McBain which can eat up some time.

They took ties and poles for McBain. They sometimes spend up to an hour switching there.

Nice! It was also nice to see a 6 car train in TC yesterday, though compared to recent weeks of 10-19 car trains, this was "short". However, the 10-19 cars trains included many cars for scrapping, and this one was all revenue cars/loads. Nice to see the rails on the Grawn branch to Beacon quite shiny again.

Moved from Selma Yard to engine house at 1345. Possible Yuma trip in between.
