Not 100%, but sounded like northbound out of Cadillac at 0945. There's a lot of background noise this morning so not entirely sure. Lot of cement hoppers in town.

As of 1245 they hadn't been thru Traverse City. I checked several crossings and also went South on River Rd. a few miles, no GLC today.

GLC arriving in TC at 12:15pm, and apparently quite a sizable train from what I was told. We missed updates of what came into Cadillac yesterday, so not sure what came up here.

Well this was a surprise, I was coming out of GJ's store on Holiday Rd., TC and hear a loud horn near by. I scooted over to the tracks just in time to catch 392 and 396 with no cars headed East to Williamsburg. Did anyone else see them in town? With two engines here they maybe went to Beacon too? Was about 1340.

Back into Cadillac from the north at 1715. Hoppers to Beacon maybe?

Edit: A trip to the north end to extinguish a Culver's craving revealed 1 gondola and 2 empty centerbeams returned from TC.

I noticed today the spurs by US-127 in Ithaca are finally cleared out, this latest scrap run must have done it.

Returned to Cadillac sometime between 1600 and 1700. Drove past Selma Yard and looks like tie gons, coke hoppers, a pole load and an empty centerbeam came in.

There should be a fair amount of electrical hardware destined for the Elmira area for the new EJ (f.k.a. East Jordan Iron Works) foundry.

389 got scrapped though, didn't it? Also, I would like any additional updates along the way if possible, I want to catch it!
