I was working in downtown Kingsley this afternoon and heard them go through. Loud as heck from a block away.

Do you think we'll be seeing CTSN run at night, much like ONTN did while track upgrades happened between Owosso-Ithaca?

Any clue if they'll be making a TC run this week? I might be able to go film at one of the crossings in town if they are.

Nothing for TC in Cadillac as of this morning. Two or three plastics hoppers for Petoskey in the yard.
