Not 100 percent, but sounded like northbound out of Cadillac at 0915. Haven't heard them since.

Edit:. Didn't catchthe power, but at least 5 empty centerbeams headed towards Clare at 1020.

Based on reports elsewhere Friday, it sounds like ONTN is back on the day shift and track work may be finished.

Nb at shepherd at 1200. 2 units, 4 black tanks, 3-4 old tsby hoppers, 3 empty beams, 2 more tsby hoppers. I cant read reporting marks from the highway but that's what they look like. The beam cars are dark blue or black. From what I'm told biewer is running limited production while the new equipment is out online. That's projected to last 5 more weeks and started a week ago today.

Nice to see the newly painted 382 up there! Where do those TSBY hoppers go?

MAC has been shipping outbound with the TSBY hoppers again this fall. I don't believe they used a single one last year. I did notice while watching them switch this morning, one of the TSBY hoppers had a build date of 1967 with an extended life notice stenciled on the side. Almost as old as me.
