I am about 2 miles north of Ann Arbor at a park and I hear a heavy northbound on the Annie.

UPDATE: long cut of cars were dropped at Osmer. Nearly filled the west siding. Mostly covered hoppers and tankers. Heard the engines return south about 1/2 hour later.

It looks like 12 of the cars in the video are from the feed warehouse. The first block was 5 then toward the end another of 7.

398 currently switching North Yard. So it appears there are at least four locomotives in Cadillac this morning. There is a loaded centerbeam and Ex-TSBY hoppers being moved around. First day for MAC facility.

Does anyone know if the centerbeam and the hoppers made it up here to TC? I was out and around quite a bit yesterday and didn't catch them.

Did biewer mcbain ship 5 chip hoppers and 3 lumber in the last couple days? If so they just passed by my house on cn headed west. I guess that's not related to movements on gl but I find it fascinating when I see trains and loads on other parts of the national system.

Lake Ave. in Traverse City has been closed for major reconstruction. Crews have found rails buried under the pavement, remains of the siding that used to go behind McGough's Farm & Lawn Supply then across 8th street ending at TC Canning Co. now Thirlby's Automotive.
