When I came through Clare letherer truss had an empty beam car. Those hoppers south of the bean plant were gone. Looked like some old tsby hoppers east of 127 on the Middleton district. Nothing to the west. Not sure if they were parked or moving east. 1500

With a 10mph restriction even when they're moving it looks like they're standing still :lol:

They were up here sometime Friday. I saw fresh tracks at the Holiday Rd. crossing. No chance to catch them till I get my own car, maybe next month.

A loaded center beam at Amerhart, and at least one gondola at Beacon, with GLC headed back south to Cadillac.

Looks like a northern run out of Cadillac today. Not sure if TC or Petoskey, they were gone before I got in town.

Edit: Looks like TC.

Thanks for the heads up. I went down to the tracks about 2pm, didn't see a train but at the 5 mile rd. crossing in TC there are fresh tracks in the snow. Maybe they are still in Williamsburg.
