Nothing seen or heard on the south end of Cadillac this morning. Assuming they are northbound. My guess would be Petoskey way.

Has anyone heard of a glc engine being sent away? There was a train by my stream at 1228 that looked very similar headed west. If any of you who are more familiar with great lakes roster want to take a look you should be able to back the live stream up to that time.

Didn't see any movement in Cadillac this morning. Wife saw train leaving towards Clare at 1700. Curios if Owosso crew came all the way up here today.
