Re: Great Lakes Central Updates June 2021

Through Manton at 17:00. 384 and 386, the first time I’ve seen them! Now all I have to see is 383 and I’ll have seen every active GLC engine.

Re: Great Lakes Central Updates June 2021

The crossing on Garfield Road just North of Kingsley is currently malfunctioning and is impassable. Funnily enough, it’s next to the bus garage, and the buses can’t get around it. Might cause problems later on.

Re: Great Lakes Central Updates May 2021

Any clue what engines? I was only getting horn reports this morning, never got visual confirmation.
Went through Kingsley around 10:34, I went outside and heard them at 10:36.

What day will they likely run to TC this week?

(I'm also curious when they may run to Petoskey as well).
They seem to like doing night runs to TC, or early evening. Petoskey is a crapshoot on when they’ll go, usually it’s during the day mid-week.

Re: CN Flint Sub Defect Detectors Still Talking?

There's two on either end of Imlay City. One near the Summer's Road Bridge on the West Side of town, and one on the East side near Capac. That being said, I've only ever heard regular communications from the Summer's Road one when I've been down there. I think the Eastern one is defects only.

Shattering the quiet night near Kingsley at 22:03. The horns and faint rumble sound very creepy from about 4 miles out in a wide open field.

Re: Great Lakes Central Updates - April 2021

Is there a lot wrong with 397? I don’t know much about it but I think they couldn’t fix it after the accident at Walton Was this the one that was hit by the train car up north? That's what likely occurred. Nobody's too sure what happened, since nobody ever got a good look at it. Odd that they're sc...

Re: Great Lakes Central Updates - April 2021

I'm getting secondhand reports on the train, all I got was that there were two cars behind the engines with "stuff in them". It's my Grandmother giving me the reports, so all I'm sure of is that there's 2 engines (398 and 399) and 2 cars with "stuff".
