Pulled 3 loads from Beacon and spotted an empty, pulled an empty from Amerhart, could not see what was dropped off.

Bridge pier and decking replacement continues near the depot, and Queen City Railroad Construction has added more equipment and is moving stacks of ties along the ROW. Looks like several crossings will be replaced, and rail, joint bars (many painted orange).

As always like your video's AANR. It's cool how some of the cars have the old ties loaded neatly inside the gondola's and others have them tossed in disorganized. I wonder if it makes a difference unloading them?

Thank you AARR. I've never seen them unloading the ties. I'll keep the videos coming, it's nice to have the tracks run through my route.

GLC ONTN is on nights tonight. Should be in Alma between 20:30 and 22:00 going north. I might try and get some shots of the sunset, but I'm undecided.

Returned to Cadillac from Petoskey at 1700. Thought they headed that way today since I didn't see them on the south side of town.
