From yesterday (December 1): no running power visible at the shops in Owosso, it was either inside or being used elsewhere. Recently repaired 393 is back on the road again and was being used as the trailing unit on the North Pole Express. 391, 394 and 385 are in their usual spots outside. Rumor is 391 will be the next GP35 they start working on.

394 and 1977, neither of which currently run. The other is GE 25 Tonner #1226, which is the Owosso shop goat.

Heard them on the north end of Cadillac around 1000. Haven't heard them since. Possibly northbound today. Didn't see yesterday's inbound.
