I never saw or heard anything on Tuesday, but today I noticed the rails in TC look shined up.

GLC 382 (fresh from the booth wearing a new paint scheme) facing north currently tying onto a passenger special in Owosso. More info as I see/hear it.

Update departed Owasso at 11:15 382 on the head end three coaches and 399 on the rear heading north.
The train only went as far as the new facility on 127 in Ithaca. It is heading back south toward Owosso.

Having seen the amount of rail they have laid into the new ZFS facility there in Ithaca,I bet there will be a lot of rail activity there.

I didn't get terribly close because the 2nd drone battery ran out at a critical moment (go figure), but what you can see in the video below looks to be very impressive indeed.

Thanks man, I appreciate it. Unfortunately the video may need to be redone to include the credit for the music, or put new music in it. They're royalty free songs but I forgot to credit them and it's likely just a matter of time before the video gets flagged or pulled. Not all bad, this video was kinda rushed and lacks all the info I would have preferred to be onscreen. Plus, I have a little more drone footage that I'd like to add from Ithaca.

Well TC man was our best info supplier till he left town a month or so ago. I kinda rely on the Cadillac boys for a heads up on TC bound trains, I can then report what I see. A little hard for me to prowl thru town every day looking for something. But I will post what I can.

There was a report on a different board that they made a run to TC this past Saturday. I haven't had much luck catching the inbound trains lately since I recently moved out of the city limits. And it seems like the ones I do catch have nothing for TC with them. :(
