Lots of switching in Cadillac this morning. Nothing left town as of 1130.

Update: Does not appear they left town today.

Nothing seen or heard on the south side of Cadillac this morning. Assuming a northbound run. Cars for both
TC and Petoskey sitting in the yard yesterday.

GLC 397 is northbound at Pitt with 40 cars. Going to wait for a westbound CN, and possibly Q116.

116 is an east bound. Probably R149 running super late. A lot of cn traffic east of here is running a reroute due to track blockages. I'm just not sure what route they're taking. I have heard something about through New York and the holly sub so maybe across an eastern road south of the lake...

Should be there. I’m pretty proud of it as it’s my first really proper video where I expected to see the train and caught the crossing!

While the Cadillac crew was north today, the Owosso train came all the north. A crew change and they were back to Owosso at 1750. 382 and 329 came up, 390 was added for the return trip.

Seems like 390 had a busy day. I thought it had come up here from elsewhere, I’ve never seen it before.
