Heard them northbound out of Cadillac at 0910. Most likely Petoskey way. But didn't see them.

Probably because no cars for TC in the north yard.

There was/is a Beacon car in Cadillac waiting to go north (came up last Wed), another loaded at Beacon (plus switching to be done there of the TSBY hoppers), and an empty center beam at Amerhart, so I would not rule out a TC trip soon.

FYI GLC must have been in TC yesterday- fresh flange marks and a missing center beam. 8)

Nice pics! GLC 329 and 396 are at Beacon in TC doing lots of switching.

Thanks for the Beacon photos NS3322.
I heard them about 12 noon today in TC again. No chance to see what they brought up here.

At least a center beam for Amerhart and an empty for Beacon, plus there were 2 loads to be picked up. Not sure if they brought any more cars up for scrapping. They were doing a lot of switching at Beacon but I was not right there (next paved crossing north as I just washed my truck). Sad to see TSBY 1994 going to the scrap line (former AA box car repainted yellow/blue by TSBY to shuttle company supplies between Owosso and Cadillac for many years). So two trips to TC this week...

Correction, just 329 without 396 came to Traverse City today. Both came up on Wednesday.

Will the old Ann Arbor boxcars and one old DTSL boxcar in Cadillac suffer the same fate as TSBY #1994?

Maybe GLC is storing stuff in them, therefore still in use.
