The FRA train did Petoskey first and was southbound out of Petoskey at 2:00
Here's a shot of 398-393 with the FRA inspection train northbound just south of Elmira at Manglos Rd. on Thursday.

(yep, that's a smear on the lens.... :cry: )

FRA train left Cadillac for Owosso approximately 0830.

They were spotted in Owosso today around 1 PM. Anyone know if they are running to the AARR?

Speeder Cars are leaving Petoskey sometime this morning, tying down in Kalkaska for Lunch at 11:30, and headed to Traverse City afterwards. Supposed to be stopping in Kingsley for a few minutes around 14:30.
If you see a little grey Subaru at the tracks, it’s me.

Speeders stopped in Kingsley at 9:05 for coffee, and will be back on the road soon. Cadillac bound.

FRA Tren on the move today? I am assuming it's been in Owosso all week. Does it go south to Osmer? If so, does it continue on to AA or come back north and be handed off to CSX or CN?

Nb just out of shepherd at 1355 with 2 units. One that's half gray and another 4 axle. Way too far to see numbers. Single peach colored hopper, 2 gons at least one with ties in it, loaded beam car on the tail end. Maybe a tc car, someone will have to look for it in Cadillac.

Half Grey would be 393. That's the only unit in that specific paint scheme.

I won’t be in Kingsley on Wednesday, but will be in Manton, so either way I’ll hear them. Maybe they’ll go on Friday when I’m at work.

ONTN power was 386 and 384. Anyone know if the power got switched in Clare? It would be very cool to see 2 SD35’s in TC this week.

Today’s mini chase through Traverse City. Sorry for the poor quality I film the trains with a iPhone 12 and it comes out clear but when I upload the video it is poor quality

Looks like there were plenty of people out watching them today. I always forget how loud they are from up close.
