Heard them on the north end of Cadillac at 0830. Assuming a Petoskey run today as I haven't heard them since then.

Update: Heard them back on the north end at 1750.

Have not seen if it has been posted, or a video of it, but saw GLC 382 yesterday and it now has a large number under the cab window, where the GLC letters used to be, similar to 329, instead of the much smaller and off centered number on one of the battery box doors. Like 329, and now 382, there are no GLC markings of any kind on either of the two "new" six axel units.

Wow, the lack of sand has really shortened the trains around here!

Heard horns on the north end of Cadillac at 1430 and 1440. Guessing a northbound trip today. Didn't hear them leave.

Stopped in Cadillac on way to Frankenmuth this morning, 398 (?) And center beam idling at engine house and a crew walking to engine. Super rare Saturday run to Traverse City! There were 2 empty center beams at Amerhart yesterday and 5 loads at Beacon ready for pick up. Plus needing to switch more hoppers onto Beacon siding.

Good to see! Surprised the super rare Saturday Traverse City trip didn't generate more excitement from the TC folks. Returning to TC from Frankenmuth last night, 398 and 382 were next to the engine house in Cadillac, the place that gets the hoppers right near there was busting at the seams on both sidings with hoppers. One tank at the transload. Selma Yard seemed pretty full (center beam, Beacon gon, rows of other cars such as Coke, sand cars, poles, wood chip cars, etc. North Yard had a ton of plastic hoppers (seems like an awlful lot compated to what they normally take to Petoskey), and many, many tank cars (mostly black, a couple white "Proctor" cars in the mix. I saw about 5 center beam loads of New ties headed north through Durand on a GLC train there last week. Not sure what the deal is with those?

I only got to see that the rails are shined up on the Williamsburg branch.
