1st off, I hope you're ok, our thoughts and prayers are with you.

2. Unfortunately there is no live camera, BUT, I will try to get a livestream going from my youtube channel, No promises however.

3. It runs Owosso-Carland-Ashley.


Get better Jim,

Broken leg from a fall, I'm in rehab for another week.
What day is the run? That would be great to put up a livestream. Please post a link to it.
Thank you,

It's the almost yearly Polar express runs. Goes Owosso to Ashley and back twice each Saturday and Sunday for the next few weeks.

It has some wiring issues. They fixed it another weekend as well.

The F40 was on the train this past weekend, but they were also using the generator car (ex troop sleeper), so HEP issues seem likely
