Unsure if the Cadillac crew left town today. As of 1230 this afternoon they were still attempting to get a car back onto the rails on the east end of Selma Yard.

390 and 392 through Temple towards Cadillac at 1552. 28 cars, virtually all of which looked destined for McBain. Very nice- been a long time since I've seen only GP35s on the point.

Heading south for the weekend, stopped by Cadillac to check out GLC.
Caught them switching at Tufford (North) Yard on the north end early Friday.
Here's a few shots taken despite the weather acting like it was still winter.

First shot: The 5 bulkhead flats with flat steel loads can be seen while 329-399 work the yard.
Image

With the snow and wind blowing, a Quality Energy semi waits for the crossing to clear before leaving the yard.
Image

Finally the weather improves and with sunshine upon us, we get another view of those bulkhead flats.
Image

Under much better sky's, we see 329 and 399 still working the yard, along with the new sign at the entrance.
Image


Where are those bulkheads of steel going:
Kaleva Michigan I've been told.

With Quality Energy trucks hauling them out, this seems like the likely destination.

Next mystery, Who/What is Tufford Yard named after?
