You're welcome. My train chasing is way down since track work started. Went with a different angle at Euclid St due to the time of day. Luckily the rain held off.

I just saw a HyRail pickup approaching T.C. just South of the RR station about 1330. Nothing on board so maybe just an inspection. That looks like fun, I'd like to ride in one someday.

Looks like a load of lumber is headed north out of Owosso this evening.

How about scrap- also probably way down? Beacon still has 6 DJJX gons, at least 2 loaded. Seems there was an empty DJJX coming up to Cadillac for TC earlier this week (remember seeing one on one of the GLC videos on the GLC FB page).

Actually, you missed one. I just got back from a week in Texas and note that the 6 cars around Beacon are all chanced around. Instead of 2 on the spur and 4 on the main, there are now 4 on the spur and 2 on the main. And shiney rails, so they came somentimenthis week. I last looked last Saturday. And I flew out Saturday afternoon, arriving back yesterday. so it was this past week. Maybe at night?? Rails to Williamsburg are also shiney.

I don't know how shiny a hyrail will do but there was one up here in T.C. last Wednesday.
