GLC in TC now, 382 and 3??. 2nd train to TC this week!

10:15pm edit- passing 4 Mile near Acme on way back to Traverse City. I don't think they've been to Beacon yet....


11:30 edit- headed out of TC. Could only see the EOT flashing along River Road, so not sure what they took south.

Think they'll run Petoskey tomorrow? Might try catching them at 113 in Walton. I was over there tonight on the hiking trail that crosses just down from that crossing.
