Monday was a holiday so not sure if GDLK crews works on holidays
@ Tankcar123 « Tue 4:16:41 pm »
GDLK didn’t run south on Thursday. And they didn’t run on Friday or Monday.
@ Andy24 « Tue 4:14:13 pm »
It is also summer and my plans are to get more Grand Elk footage over CSX trains
@ Andy24 « Tue 4:13:50 pm »
I’ve been to Seymour before and caught a few trains there
@ ~Z~ « Tue 4:01:06 pm »
i rode up to Seymour on Saturday, alas, no trains seen, but there’s a nice dirt track that runs through the woods to the SE of the tracks and Kalamazoo Ave that runs over towards Alger bridge. Track is called "The underground"
@ ~Z~ « Tue 4:00:18 pm »
you ever just ride north from your place up towards seymour or breton? Slightly better chance of seeing a train there, if only ever so slightly :)
@ ~Z~ « Tue 3:59:11 pm »
i was surprised to see them southbound as well, but alas, away they went
@ Andy24 « Tue 3:53:37 pm »
Indeed I did
@ ~Z~ « Tue 3:53:06 pm »
All sorts of options - either they didn’t go back south thursday, didn’t run friday, or the northbound run was today around 11am when I was out...dunno, but whatever the case, they are southbound
@ ~Z~ « Tue 3:51:28 pm »
you missed it
@ Andy24 « Tue 3:38:29 pm »
Okay, I will wait until I do my 10 mile bike ride this evening towards Grand Elk tracks
@ ~Z~ « Tue 3:36:40 pm »

General Order No.11
General Order No.11, WASHINGTON, D.C., May 5, 1868

i. The 30th day of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet church-yard in the land. In this observance no form of ceremony is prescribed, but posts and comrades will in their own way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstances may permit. We are organized, comrades, as our regulations tell us, for the purpose among other things, “of preserving and strengthening those kind and fraternal feelings which have bound together the soldiers, sailors, and marines who united to suppress the late rebellion.” What can aid more to assure this result than cherishing tenderly the memory of our heroic dead, who made their breasts a barricade between our country and its foes? Their soldier lives were the reveille of freedom to a race in chains, and their deaths the tattoo of rebellious tyranny in arms. We should guard their graves with sacred vigilance. All that the consecrated wealth and taste of the nation can add to their adornment and security is but a fitting tribute to the memory of her slain defenders. Let no wanton foot tread rudely on such hallowed grounds. Let pleasant paths invite the coming and going of reverent visitors and fond mourners. Let no vandalism of avarice or neglect, no ravages of time testify to the present or to the coming generations that we have forgotten as a people the cost of a free and undivided republic. If other eyes grow dull, other hands slack, and other hearts cold in the solemn trust, ours shall keep it well as long as the light and warmth of life remain to us. Let us, then, at the time appointed gather around their sacred remains and garland the passionless mounds above them with the choicest flowers of spring-time; let us raise above them the dear old flag they saved from dishonor; let us in this solemn presence renew our pledges to aid and assist those whom they have left among us a sacred charge upon a nation’s gratitude, the soldier’s and sailor’s widow and orphan.

ii. It is the purpose of the Commander-in-Chief to inaugurate this observance with the hope that it will be kept up from year to year, while a survivor of the war remains to honor the memory of his departed comrades. He earnestly desires the public press to lend its friendly aid in bringing to the notice of comrades in all parts of the country in time for simultaneous compliance therewith.

iii. Department commanders will use efforts to make this order effective.
By order of JOHN A. LOGAN, Commander-in-Chief N.P. CHIPMAN, Adjutant General
Official: WM. T. COLLINS, A.A.G.
(At many Memorial Day Celebrations folks will read Order Number 11 as part of the ceremony)
