PC: Re: Northern Michigan operations

TSBY still works north to the Wexford Sand Co. pit at Yuma. PRR
tracks south of Cadillac are removed, TSBY uses old AA tracks south
from Cadillac. TSBY also has former PRR tracks to Traverse City and
TSBY/MDOT have been upgrading tracks and the whole line is in good
shape with many bridges and crossings being rebuilt and track rehab.
There was talk of putting tracks back in from Cadillac to Reed City to
serve a potash mine but was cost prohibited, instead truck to rail 
transfer was built in former PRR north yard, Cadillac, and potash is
trucked in from Reed City.
Current major shippers are Holnam Cement, Elmira Mi, Petoskey Plastics,
Petoskey, Wexford Sand Co., Yuma, also lumber, cherries, scrap metel
at Traverse City on former C&O trackage.
TSBY's main power is former AA GP-35's.
