MOW was in TC yesterday, and there is a loaded center beam and an empty gon in Cadillac- expecting a TC run today. Hopefully!

383 and 396 departing TC depot headed for Cadillac- 6:10pm. There are now 2 gons at Beacon. There was a black new-looking Trail Boss with a guy and his child, both filming. Anyone from here?

They did not pick up any gons at Beacon. They dropped off one and spotted another that was already there. They left with 396 leading and 383 trailing, no cars.

Heard them at Sparling Road's gated crossing. Train horns are creepy at night.

They used to come here on a loose schedule Fridays or maybe a Thursday. But as of late they seem to come Friday or Saturday in the night. Best hint comes from the guys in Cadillac where they report the TC cars sitting there to come up here soon.
