Roscommon/Clare train watching

Unread postby hoborich » Tue Jul 10, 2018 12:52 pm

Having moved to northern Michigan a few years ago, train watching opportunities have been severely curtailed. So.....when do trains come through Roscommon or Clare? Thanks :lol:

Roscommon - Probably about twice a week (both ways). If you see a pattern on the days I'd appreciate it if you post it. The frequency may increase after the particle board plant in Grayling is finished (I know how much you are looking forward to that :lol: ).

Clare gets trains at least three times a week and sometimes five usually late morning to early afternoon. GLC crews arrive from Owosso and Cadillac and swap trains in Clare.

Thanks. I was down to Clare last week and rode a portion of the Pere Marquette rail trail, and around Clare, but no trains. Filled up for $2.59 a gallon though. BONUS! :lol:

Also, do you like donuts? I highly recommend Cops and Donuts in Clare! Yummy!

Went right by there. One of the owners was sitting out on the sidewalk having coffee with some tourists, and explaining the concept. I forget his name. He was in that UTR piece on Cops And Donuts, on PBS. I think his name is Rainer or Raynor or something like that.
