A couple of those tank cars (the first two) look like they're for the foam plant in Farwell, Renesol.

Bit of a different day in Cadillac today. Heard the Cadillac crew in Selma Yard around 1030, then nothing after that. At 1355, the Owosso crew rolled in. At 1545 they departed back to Owosso after a powerand train swap.

Perhaps the daytime OTN crew will die on hours short of Owosso and the Owosso nighttime crew will pick it up from there

When this happens, they usually recrew in Cadillac to save commute time in the company vehicle. Extra Board crew was most likely the one to drive up, get on the train, then the day crew would drive back to Owosso to tie up. Once the EB crew made it back to Owosso, the Night Crew would hop on and go.

Little late, but better than never. Northbound through Alma about 2-3 hours ago. Not sure what they were doing, but figured I'd post when I had the chance incase someone knew.

It looks as though the Mancelona derailment has trapped two locomotives. I wonder if today’s run noted by HESR will run through to Cadillac.

That's what I was thinking. Have a crew run a train to Cadillac so they can work this week while the cars are rerailed and so on so fourth.

398 ran through Manton headed north but reversed this morning. No cars from reports. Maybe going to free unharmed cars from Mancelona derailment.
