GLC is meeting in lake George today. 398 and 390 came NB with two covered hoppers, a string of ties and a tank car. Currently sitting in lake George waiting for the Cadillac turn to arrive

396 and 329 came at 1:15 to swap trains... had a lumber load, a few wood chip loads, two pole empties, a string of tie empties, two CH and three coke empties. Both trains left between 1:20-1:30 back their respective ways. Haven’t seen GLC swap at Lake George before, very cool to see it happen in pretty much the backyard of my cabin!

That is pretty cool Chief. Although Clare is the usual meeting point they have also met as far south as Mt. Pleasant and even Shepherd. Lake George seems to be about as far north that I'm aware of.

I don't think AANscaleRunner can tell unless he actuals sees the consist. There are 4 loads ready at Beacon and an empty at Amerhart, as well as some switching of hoppers from the main onto the Beacon siding to be done, but who knows if they come up here today....

Right you are TC Man, No chance to see what they take north while I'm working. I can only hear them and sometimes that's difficult depending on how close I am to Mitchell Street with the traffic noise. They haven't returned to town as of 1800. Looks like there is a Beacon gon waiting in the yard.

This is the new sign that was recently placed in Cadillac's North Yard near the MAC facility.

A friend of mine posted a video on their Snapchat of GLC Rolling north through Mancelona around 12:00 with 7 or 8 plastics hoppers and a good block of cement hoppers. "A train in northern Michigan??" The post read.

Thanks AANR! I see the NSSX and NOKL gondolas are used ties for McBain and not for scrap loading at Beacon
