I haven't seen any in a couple weeks. I've not been able to catch all the trains lately, both incoming or outgoing, so it is possible I've missed them.

397 and 398 leaving Cadillac for Clare at 1015 with 21 cars. 11 for McBain including 3 empty centerbeams. Good to see all the lumber traffic leaving McBain. Almost every train to Clare lately has an empty for the sawmill.

Looks like today's northbound out of Owosso has 329 and 390, was in Rosebush a little while ago per a Facebook update.

Also, 382 is currently being repainted at Owosso.

Drove past the two yards in Cadillac this afternoon. Selma Yard is looking pretty bare. A string of coke hoppers and a string of ties and an empty centerbeam. North Yard is packed with cement hoppers, plastics hoppers and tanks. There are 5 ex-TSBY hoppers on the southern end, but didn't look like anything for TC unless its well hidden.

It seems ONTN is currently operating on a quasi 2nd/3rd shift due to track work, and will be for a week or two. I'm unsure where this work is taking place or what precisely it is.
I'm assuming this means that ONTN and CSTN are still hauling freight to Clare, but just collecting/dropping it 10-12 hours apart.
