Very strange. As of a few minutes ago this incident hasn't made any of the local Cadillac media.
The location given(Bond/Wright) is a section of track that they would be going very slow over.

I haven't found much online. Again, the report was from an FB group and to be taken as such. But the person that posted it did live in Cadillac.

Sb from the ithaca bean plant at 1707. 395 & 386 s few black tanks and a bunch of vtg cars from ithaca. 1 high side chip type hopper, 4 empty pole cars, some empty tie cars. 1 almost looked like it has new ties but tough to tell across the field and not sure why it would be going south. Maybe scrap or something.
