Drove past both yards in Cadillac after work today. 2 gons sitting in Tufford, no cement or plastics hoppers to be found. My guess is they ran to Traverse City yesterday and Petoskey today.

Don't believe they are running out of Cadillac today. A hopper jumped the rails at Wyoming Feed and was blocking the main this morning. Did watch them switch Tufford Yard for about an hour.

PM 1225 will be in town tomorrow from MT Pleasant for a color tour.

19:48 and they are still in Mt Pleasant. Got back from Cadillac just before 7. Supposedly leaving the passenger cars here for diesel trips next couple of weeks.

edit
Departed 19:53 with 1225, the extra tender and tool car only.

Leaving Cadillac for Clare at 1235. Long train today. Late leave today, spent most of the morning switching the two yards, then had to go back to Wyoming Feed to spot a hopper that is smoldering. Fire Department is going to extinguish it this afternoon.
