Good morning and happy August! I’m hoping they go North to TC or Petoskey/Elmira this morning.
I live in Kingsley and film trains & crossings.

Through as in north toward Petoskey, or as in northwest to TC?

Not that I can check them out from here in Charlottesville, VA. Though I did see a Buckingham Branch Railroad train earlier.

Possible northbound to Petoskey today. Heard them moving around 30 minutes ago, nothing since.

Edit: Sounded like northbound at 1000.

Edit: Ran as far as Kalkaska. Back into Cadillac at 1545.

My son just moved into his dorm right next to the tracks at CMU today. Says he can currently hear a train approaching campus. Not sure yet which direction it is headed, thinks it is northbound.

Per the Borg, there appears to be a GLC run to Traverse City on Monday scheduled to go to Williamsburg to deliver some hot lumber cars.

Thanks for the heads up. We have been waiting for a load of lumber to get started on the new house as well as seeing a train for the first time in over a month.

Over a month? GLC was in TC on August 5th with lumber and picked up loads at Beacon.
