They're making a run to Traverse City today. Sounds like maybe 393 is leading?
If you see a little grey Subaru at the tracks, it’s me.

390/399/398 headed out of Middleton with all the tanks and four hoppers, leaving 60 hoppers behind.

They must be planning a separate run from Middleton to ZFS here soon.

Sounds like they’re going North out of Cadillac again today. Petoskey or Elmira?

Nothing heard in Cadillac as of 1100. I would assume a north run, most likely Petoskey. I do not know for certain.
