If you see a little grey Subaru at the tracks, it’s me.

GLC working Ann Pere at the moment (04:00). 382 and 384 sandwiched between two sets of loads. This post is a duplicate from the CSX locations.

Looks like there is 1 lumber and 15 ballast hoppers all going to Williamsburg right now. Should be in TC for a while I would think.

Update on the TC run: they dropped off the center beam at Amerhart and all 15 ballast hoppers (they definitely crossed M-72) and they are departing TC now light back to Cadillac. I was told they are coming back next week sometime

Train in the Manton area I think. Heard the horn way too many times for it not to be. Sounds like a 38.

Did it do TC or Kalkaska/Petoskey? And was it going back to Cadillac

I don't know what branch it did, but it went back to Cadillac when I was at the tracks.
