I often see, as in this video, empty centerbeams headed for Clare. TC where I am at usually sends back only one or two from Amerihart. So who is using all the rest of those cars?

Biewer Lumber Sawmill in McBain loads center beams. They were also loading wood chips for a mill in WI but those are now going to the new mill in Grayling and they switched to trucks.

For a while biewer was also shipping logs. They staged them in lake city and had log trucks haul them to the yard in Cadillac to load on rail cars. Not sure how long that took place or why. They were doing it last year when I was into biewer lake city regularly. I would periodically see the loaded cars come past my house in Charlotte on 501 or 542, the locals that picked up in durand anyway. The chips and loaded biewer beams cars would be on the same train too.

399 and 395 returned to Cadillac at 1410 with 16 cars. Nothing for TC. On a side note, the North American Railcar Association is running an excursion out of town this weekend. Petoskey today, TC tomorrow.

ONTN is northbound through Alma. Didn't sound like a set out for the MMRR tonight, but will have to pickup 329 coming south after the MMRR borrowed it to run the 89 car grain train to Breckenridge.

Well, as most know, plans change on the railroad. 329 is still sitting on the interchange south of Ely St. ONTN was south through here, (Alma), 10 minutes ago with 399 and 395 and roughly 35+ cars including SRI equipment.

Left Cadillac at 0850 with 2 empty centerbeams for McBain. Returned at 0940. Last time they only ran to McBain they also ran to TC later in the day. As far as I know there are no cars for TC in Cadillac, but three gonna at Beacon to be picked up. I won't be able to hear them head north.
