They don't have time to go to Petoskey and TC in one day.
Back before Beacon started rail up again, I seem to remember someone posting in here that they do on occasion go both Northern branches making a long day. Might have been coming up on a holiday and they wanted to get cars out.


That's only when they go as far as Elmira and then to TC, not all the way to Petoskey.

No problem Todd! Always a pleasure, and it's always nice to be out chasing!

I just finished re-decking my deck with composite boards from EVERHEART. My deck passed right past the road I live on (Holiday Rd.) in Traverse City and on to Amerheart in Willamsburg. Then trucked back to Traverse City to Northern Lumber who delivered it ti me Kind of a roundbout way as they crossed Holiday Rd. three times. The deck is great, thanks to Northern Lumber and GLC to get it here.

I spoke with crew today at 10am.
GLC not running out of Owosso today due to track work.

Duncan, they are apparently running to Osmer tomorrow morning, so maybe I’ll see you there!

Sorry, I'm up on vacation in Traverse City and will be back in Ann Arbor around 2pm tomorrow. I don't think I'll be able to make it to Osmer.

Thanks for the love guys, I’m glad you enjoyed the video.

No worries Duncan. Thought I’d give you the heads up in case you we’re available.

Just had 4 engines pass the old depot in Howell. Guessing they're headed to Ann Pere.

They picked up 10 TSBY covered hoppers from the siding at Chilson. Todd F suggests that those are headed to Beacon in TC.

At Durand, GLC took the TSBY cars and headed north, leaving the Osmer train on the main.

HESR grabbed that quickly and headed towards Saginaw.
