CSTN departed Cadillac at 1256 with 395, 399, 396 and 17 cars (12 gons for McBain, 3 empty center beams for McBain, 1 empty GATX tank car, 1 loaded scrap gon from Traverse City). If McBain was like last time, I'd expect them to be there for a couple of hours.
The dispatcher is cool.

Any clue on ONTN power today, hoping 382 went north toward Alma?

382, 393 & 1 more are in Clare at 19:44.

I am guessing that they are putting a train together before heading south.

398 went North through Manton at 11:35. Single engine with 12 tanker cars. Apparently the engine’s motors were quite loud.
If you see a little grey Subaru at the tracks, it’s me.
