Nice, thank you! So 6 loads at Beacon ready for pick up and 3 empties for them. Getting close to Integrity Iron & Metal days!

Does anyone know if GLC is operating today? I remember last year that they operated on 4th of July. If so, did they go north with the cement that came in last night?

I was in Owosso from 8am til about 10am doing still shots with the drone for GLC layout reference and heard and saw nothing at either yard. So, I'm guessing the were off this year. At least during the day shift.

AARR, I can probably get them up this weekend. The pics are just a couple scenes I'm considering modeling.

Heard them on the north end of Cadillac around 1000. Haven't heard them since. Could be headed north.

Maybe TC bound because they had 2 gons for beacon and they had loaded ones ready for pick up.
