A HyRailer was up here in Traverse City this morning. I saw them a little East of the depot along Parsons rd. around 10:30. Maybe because of the recent derailments they are watching for ice etc. that puts the trains on the ground.

I thought I heard a horn around 9:45 this morning from downtown Kingsley. Didn’t go after it. Might try to catch it this evening on its return trip

Northern dry bulk. Maybe they dont run that dock anymore. I don't know for sure, I moved out of Clare 15 or 20 years ago.

Yes. Does anyone remember what year they started using that are for transload behind the old holly carburetor? When I was in high school they only used the track by seiter brothers if I remember right although once they started using the old c&o I spent a lot of time down there talking with the crews switching it.

GLC ran 395 and 398 through Kingsley at 15:25 headed towards Cadillac. It was not the same unit that went through an hour prior. They sent 2 trains up towards TC today, it seems.

I’m cooped up at home with the flu, and I was trying to nap around 10:30 when I heard the crew working the funky crossing at Walton Road.
